A Christmas Prayer

May the Christ Child’s birth bring a peace that lasts
May all of the world’s evil be condemned to the past

May goodness and light
End the dark of the night
May violence and war
Be overcome with prayer
May Jesus our Saviour
Be the answer to our cares

May the innocence of the child born in a stable
Remind us that good is in that cradle
May all the people dead from wars
May they have everlasting life: in His care

Safe in the Kingdom of God above
Safe with Jesus where all is love
These are the thoughts that I just share
This for everyone is my Christmas Prayer

"I am the way, the truth, and the life.” John 14:6
