Prayer for Love
Good and gracious God, the coming of Your Son as one of us demonstrates Your love for us and for all. As we can sometimes get caught up in the busyness and stress of the holiday season, help us remember Your love, and open our eyes and hearts to see each other as Your beloved children. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
What Can I Do Today?
Celebrate an old-fashioned and healthy tradition: tonight, fill children’s stockings with fruit and nuts, rather than toys and candy. If you do not have children, start a Christmas Eve tradition this year that is Jesus-centered and expresses solidarity with the poor.
