7 Christmas Prayers And Poems

  1. As Long as There’s a Christmas
    The first few lights glow brightly,
    as you watch the season start.
    You know you should be happy,
    but don’t feel it in your heart.Instead you think about a time
    when someone laughed with you,
    and the love you shared then filled your soul.
    But too soon it was through.So Christmas comes with sadness,
    and a yearning deep inside,
    a thirst for love and peace and hope
    that will not be denied.

    Late one night you hear a voice,
    so soft, and without blame,
    and then, surprised, you realize,
    He’s calling you by name.

    “I know your hurt and loneliness,
    the heartache that you bear.
    I listen and I cry with you
    through every single prayer.

    “I promised in the manger
    and fulfilled it from the cross.
    I built a home that’s filled with love
    for all those who are lost.

    “So let me come and heal your heart
    and give you rest within.

    For my way is kind and gentle
    and will bring you joy again.”

    His words still echo through the years,
    a vow that He made true,
    “As long as there’s a Christmas,
    I will be in love with you.”

  2. Give us, O God, the vision which can see Your love in the world in spite of human failure.
    Give us the faith to trust Your goodness in spite of our ignorance and weakness.
    Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts.
    And show us what each one of us can do to set forward the coming of the day of universal peace.

  3. Loving God, 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.Close the door of hate
    and open the door of love all over the world.
    Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
    Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,
    and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,
    and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
    forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.

    The day of joy returns, Father in Heaven, and crowns another year with peace and good will.

  5. A CHRISTMAS BLESSING
    God grant you the light of Christmas,
    which is faith;
    the warmth of Christmas,
    which is purity;
    the righteousness of Christmas,

  6. My home is full of happiness
    My stockings filled with treats
    My Christmas tree has twinkly lights
    Mum’s cooking us a feast.
    My church is full of singing
    My heart is full of joy
    My nativity has the last piece
    A little baby boy.My bible tells me of his life
    My mind is filled with tales
    My prayer is full of thankfulness
    Because on this very day –
    The son of God came down to earth
    To teach us right from wrong,
    And spread forgiveness through the world
    Today true love was born.And so we celebrate this day
    With presents, trees and lights.
    We play fun games with loved ones
    And eat food that’s really nice.
    For this day is the birthday of
    A precious little boy,
    Sent to save the world forever
    Sent to bring us joy.By Unknown Author

  7. Homelessness at Christmas time
    Sheltering God,
    your protection for us
    is made known
    in images of rock and mountain,
    wings and arms,
    tent and fold.
    A protection that makes us
    feel safe, secure, and confident –
    with knowledge and assurance that removes
    our vulnerability, and our loneliness,
    our fears and our doubts.
    You have promised to be a constant presence,
    light, warmth and comfort,
    never failing, always near.And yet, within your world
    thousands of people lack shelter
    and cannot really call where they live
    a home.
    Their lives are impoverished,
    living in a space put together
    from whatever scraps they can gather.
    The rain leaks through,
    the heat of the sun is brutal,
    the dust irritates
    and water and airborne diseases flourish.Yet for many this is their home
    where new life is conceived,
    where love is shown,
    where characters are formed,
    where faith is passed on
    and where an understanding of your protection
    Is experienced.

    God, fully human, yet fully divine,
    you know what it is like
    to be have no real home –
    born into a stable,
    no vacancies in the places of hospitality,
    forced to flee as a refugee
    with life threatening attempts on your life.

    In the seasons of Advent and Christmas
    your frailty is remembered,
    your vulnerability acknowledged,
    your purpose for the world revered.

    Come again, to give protection
    and shelter.
    Come again to strengthen the weak
    and to subdue the proud.
    Come to our own vulnerability
    and enable all to offer
    hope to a world in need.
