PARENT'S PRAYER: 

Dear Heavenly Father,
It truly is difficult to imagine what it would be like to give birth in a barn full of animals with their manure scattered about.  Then to have nowhere to lay a newly born child than in a feeding trough full of rough and dusty hay.  Some moments during that first Christmas must have felt all wrong, even desperate. There are many circumstances in our lives that seem all wrong, even desperate.  But we cannot really know what you are birthing in the midst of our discomfort.  This Christmas may we truly remember that you have plans and purposes for us far beyond what we can hope or imagine, despite what our circumstances are today.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen

FAMILY/FRIEND'S PRAYER: 

Dear Heavenly Father,
It truly is difficult to imagine what it would be like to give birth in a barn full of animals with their manure scattered about.  Then to have nowhere to lay a newly born child than in a feeding trough full of rough and dusty hay.  Some moments during that first Christmas must have felt all wrong, even desperate. There are many circumstances in the lives of the ______ family that seem all wrong, even desperate.  But they cannot really know what you are birthing in the midst of their discomfort.  This Christmas may they truly remember that you have plans and purposes for them far beyond what they can hope or imagine, despite what their circumstances are today.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen
