as we welcome you this Christmas and celebrate your birth,
help us to pray that your kingdom may truly come,
and all creation celebrate your presence among us - through pain and happiness.
We ask this in the name of Jesus,
Child of the crib and Prince of Peace. Amen
Especially as we come to the end of 2020 and start the New Year of 2021, and during these most challenging of times -
come to be with me now,
come with your healing and grace,
come fill me with your love,
come to protect me and my family and friends,
come to help me prepare to welcome and receive the Christchild.
In Jesus’ name I pray.
