Loving Father of us all,
With the Christ Child, Mary, and Joseph, we celebrate a very different Christmas. Illumine our path with your guiding Star of Light!
As we recall the birth of Jesus, enliven in us a rebirth as well. Renew our faith, strength, and hope to move forward in confidence—to embrace life and share your spirit of love.
As a life-saving vaccine becomes available, protect us, our loved ones, Church, nation, and world from this pandemic.
Visit our table. Bless this meal, our family, and friends—those present, those unable to be here, and cherished ones in heaven.
As you nourish us, may we nourish others with your love this day and throughout 2021. We make our prayer through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
