Lord,

As we are dazzled by the Christmas decorations – help us see the Light of the world in the manger. 

As we are enthralled by the beautiful carols – help us clearly hear the voices of angels proclaiming the Good News. 

As we joyfully anticipate the coming of Christmas day – help us faithfully prepare for your amazing gift. 

As we enjoy our cherished traditions – help us share the love that came down at Christmas with those who need it most. 

We are ready. 

Oh so ready.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Amen.
