Advent prayer - Saturday 24th December

Prayer idea for today:

Write a song or a poem for God about Christmas.

 

Prayer starter:

Jesus, above all else, I want you to know...

 

Our Posada Dolls travel around the Parish during Advent and stay with a different family every night.  With them are a set of prayers that families can use when they welcome the dolls into their home. The prayer of thanks particularly struck me when we hosted them and I thought I would also share this with you. 

 

Father God, we thank you that you love us so much

That you sent your Son to help us.

 

Lord Jesus, we thank you that you chose

To squeeze yourself into human form

So that you could help us,

That you were born as a baby in a poor family,

And that you taught us how to live.

 

Holy Spirit of God, we thank you that you delight

To live in us and to make us more like Jesus.

 

Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

Give us thankful hearts this Christmas.

 

Amen.

 

 

Have a joyful and blessed Christmas.
