Christmas is a time ripe with stress, so be a grace-giver to those in your family.  Resolve to pray for God’s kingdom to come everyday, for a revealing of Jesus to those who don’t know his love, for the turkey to turn out well, for authentic and loving relationships to be built, for no-one to get hurt in snow football this year.  You see, all these things are in His kingdom, every breath of life is His.

Lord Jesus,
Master of both the light and the darkness,
send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.  To you we say, “Come Lord Jesus!” Amen.
