“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Heavenly Father, Glory, Glory, Glory and Praise and Honor to Your blessed reign. You are God Almighty and Father to the human race.
We come together with our family members and friends on bended knees, and we pray and thank You abundantly for Your blessings this great day.
A day we mark our Lord Jesus’s birth as we thank You for this blessed birth. It is an amazing gift You promised mankind through the prophets. A birth that would reconcile mankind to You in eternal life and salvation.
Father, We praise You. We thank You for taking the form of flesh to be with us in the name of Jesus. You made this possible through a virgin called Mary and blessed is she chosen to do Your will on earth.
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Passing on the Word – True Spirit of Christmas
Father, we place our heartfelt thanks to You as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
Lord, on this Christmas day, As we enter into the holiest of seasons, let us think back to a much simpler time. A time when, as children, we were taught the story of Lord Jesus’s birth. And, as we grew, we learned of His teachings and ministry throughout the world.
Now as adults, we have the ability to pass on Your word and story to our children in order that they will come to love You our God and Lord Jesus as our Savior.
John 1:9-10 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.

Jesus is the true reason for the season
Help us celebrate Jesus and know that He is the true reason for the season of Christmas. We pray not to be caught in the beauty and exploitation of the world in Lord Jesus’s birth.
Rather, let us remember the humble Savior lying in a manger. 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.
We pray to truly reflect on the reason for His blessed birth. We pray to reflect on our own lives and come in repentance. May our hearts reconcile as we lay our failings at the feet of Lord Jesus and celebrate His mystical birth.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christmas Prayer – Loving one another as He Loved Us
We pray to understand His call to love one another as He Loved us. We earnestly pray to close the doors of hate and open the door of love all over the world.
May we reach out to each child with the message of His love, mercy and grace and show them what the true meaning of Christmas is to us all.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. May we take this time to extend our gifts to the poor and the lonely and bring His love to them.
We pray for all those who are not able to be with their families in this joyous season. May we reach those we can and extend the Love and Peace of Lord Jesus.
Deliver us from evil by the blessings which Lord Jesus brings, and teach us to be glad with clear hearts in this season of peace.
May the Christmas morning make us happy to be your children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving one another and feeling the true love and peace of Lord Jesus with us. We pray in the blessed name of Jesus, Amen!
