Prayer for Christmas light

A video prayer for inviting God's light into our hearts and our world.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” [John 1:5]

As lights are present in this holiday season,

Let there be a light within our hearts,

As we turn on lights to our trees,

And to our homes,

We express hope for the light of Christ to be more and more evident in our world.

May the light of Jesus presence

Shine in our forgiveness towards others.

May it shine in our expressions of justice and equality to all.

May the light shine in the care we provide for each person.

Let there be light,

In our cities,

In our families,

And in our souls.

God, thank you for providing the light that dispels the darkness.

Amen.
