Loving God, help…

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 9.44.19 AM.pngLoving God, help us remember
the birth of Jesus, 
that we may share
in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate and
open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift
and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing
which Christ brings,
 and teach
us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy
to be thy children,
 and Christmas evening
bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
