Give us, O Lord, the vision which can see your love
in the world in spite of human failure.
Give us the faith, the trust, and the goodness
in spite of our ignorance and weakness.
Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts, and show us what each one of us can do to set forth the coming of the day of universal peace.
God our Sustainer,
may the simplicity of the birth
of Jesus, your Son,
that we can readily discover him
in the ordinariness of our daily lives.
In silence, Lord,
we place ourselves amongst those
in many parts of the world
and in various circumstances
who are praying for peace in this season of peace and good will.
We too pray for peace.
God our Father,
At this time of the year
we think of loved ones,
and remember with gratitude
what others have done for us.
As the stars shone over Bethlehem,
so may we shine in the world
like bright stars
as we share the Word of Life
– Jesus your Son,
your Word among us.
