Prayer from a Christmas Heart

LPC_Christmas_tree_208By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Merciful and Loving Father,

All joy and thanksgiving begin with you “for while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8).

Our hearts need not remain broken for with you, there is hope.

Pity those who have no confessor, for whom every day is gray and every night brings terror and guilt and shame.

In confessing Jesus is Lord and releasing our sins, our hearts can rejoice and be filled with praise.

Thank you, Lord, for Christmas! May we celebrate the birth of the Christ childthe unwanted baby born in poverty and obscurity who saved the world.

In the power of the Holy Sprit, may we be ever ready to share your Gospel of love for the healing of hearts and minds.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
