Loving Father, help us remember the birth of
Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the
shepherds, and worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and open
the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good
desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ
brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas
morning make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our
beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
by Robert Louis Stevenson
