Below is also special prayer to say together on Christmas Day.

Prayer for Christmas

Lord Jesus, born in a stable,

Give courage to all who do not have a safe place to call home.

Lord Jesus, for whom the angels sang,

 Give the song of the kingdom to all who weep.

Lord Jesus, worshipped by the shepherds,

Give peace on earth to all who are oppressed.

Lord Jesus, visited by both wise and meek,

Give wisdom and humility to all who govern.

Lord Jesus, whose radiance filled a lowly manger,

shine in our lives today,

give hope to all vulnerable children and young people

and bless the work of The Children’s Society in giving them a brighter future.

Amen

(Some sections of this prayer adapted from New Patterns for Worship).
