Praying With Wonder Through Christmas

Day 5 of 7 • This day’s reading


Let’s pray:


Father in heaven, we thank you for the great joy of Christmas.

The coming of your Son, for us and for our salvation, is indeed a cause for great joy—and he himself the greatest of all joys.

Father, stir in us in this Advent season a joy in Christ that is increasingly high and wide and deep enough to endure the many trials and sufferings we face in this age.


In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
