Prayerful Reflection

O Blessed Hope, Come~
As we celebrate and remember
how Christ, our Savior,
was born on Christmas day,
we proclaim:
Blessed are You, Holy One,
who has fulfilled our hope of salvation.
Through the birth, the life,
the death and the resurrection of your child,
you have redeemed your people.
May we live this day and every day
making the joy of Jesus’ presence
real in this world
by bringing hope, peace, joy and love to all.
Amen.

 

May you and your loved ones
experience the fullness of Christ’s presence this Christmas Season
and God’s peace in your hearts as you enter the New Year.
