By Stephen W. Hiemstra
Father of all mercy,
Thank you for sending Jesus Christ into our world
while we were yet sinners (Rom 5:8).
Though our world was filled with darkness,
you sent us light to overcome this darkness (Gen 1:3; Luke 1:4).
You and you alone have given us faith, hope, dignity, and an example of love.
In the power of your Holy Spirit,
restore in us the joy of your creation,
as you did that day with the birth of a baby,
In the name Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
