A CHRISTMAS PRAYER

A Christmas Prayer
by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

Loving father, help us remember
the birth of Jesus, that we may
share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds
and the wisdom 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 clean hearts.

May the Christmas morning
make us happy to be Thy children,
and the Christmas evening bring us
to our beds with grateful thoughts
forgiving and forgiven,
for Jesus’ sake.
Amen.
