A Christmas Prayer

In Thanksgiving for Christmas Traditions

Be with us, Lord Jesus, as we celebrate the joy of Christmas traditions.
Thank you for each one that brings us closer together.
For trimming trees and hanging stockings,
For wrapping gifts and welcoming guests,
For preparing meals and sending seasonal greetings.
Make each tradition an opportunity to deepen our awareness
of your presence in our lives.
Enlarge our capacity for hospitality, generosity, and joy.
Attune us to the traditions of our Church and, through them,
draw us together in faith, hope, and charity.
In your sacred name we pray.
Amen.
