PARENT'S PRAYER: 

Dear Lord,
It is hard to grasp that you cared so much for us that you chose to become flesh and blood and be born in human form.  By doing so you opened the door of hope for humanity.  You brought light to shatter the darkness.  You brought life to a dying world.  But help us, Lord, to not think of your coming as something merely in the past – that you came; nor something in the future—that you will come again.  Instead, remind us of the truth of Christmas for us today – that you are here now.  You are here with hope and light and life for us today!  We pray that you would open our eyes to the wonder of Christmas as a present-day miracle of love and grace.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen

FAMILY/FRIEND'S PRAYER: 

Dear Lord,
It is hard to grasp that you cared so much for the human race that you chose to become flesh and blood and be born in human form.  By doing so you opened the door of hope for humanity.  You brought light to shatter the darkness.  You brought life to a dying world.  But help the _____family to not think of your coming as something merely in the past – that you came; nor something in the future—that you will come again.  Instead, remind them of the truth of Christmas for them today – that you are here now.  You are here with hope and light and life for them today!  I pray that you would open their eyes to the wonder of Christmas as a present-day miracle of love and grace.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen
