A Christmas Prayer

Christmas is 3 days away and I'd like to say this CHRISTMAS PRAYER to all of you out there.

Jesus, we celebrate your birth as we give presents to our friends and family. When we go about wrapping our gifts, fixing the house, preparing and presenting the food for our traditional Noche Buena, we celebrate your birth.

As we gather around the table and pray over the delicious Christmas food, we celebrate your birth. When we remember the sick & needy at Christmas, Jesus, we celebrate your birth. And now, Jesus, we celebrate your birth by giving you our lives, what's left of it. We've been running ourselves so it's not what it should be. Take us Lord, clean us up from the inside out, and make us into the kind of persons you want us to be.

Forgive us for all our sins, for hurting you and hurting people around us. Give us a forgiving heart to forgive those who hurt us in the past.

May your Holy Spirit reconcile and unite our family from this day forward. We pray for healing of our bodies, our minds, emotions and relationships. We pray for each member of our family, for your love and peace to surround us, for your Holy Spirit to guide us, for your loving arms to comfort us.

We pray for families who are suffering and in need. Give us loving hearts to reach out to love them. We dedicate this day to you. We pray for your blessings upon our home.

In the name of Jesus we pray.
