Advent Comfort: Christmas Prayer  (Luke 1:46-56)

“My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior…” -Luke 1:46

Holy God,
Along with Mary
We are people of our time and place
We wonder at the miracle of Your Son
Our hearts sing praise
While our minds struggle to accept the mystery
With our arms reaching
We welcome the unexpected gifts of this season.

Thank you
Again You arrive in our homes
Our hearts

We welcome you in Lord Jesus
Rearrange our worn out expectations
Give us eyes to see Your beauty
Ears to hear Your call
Hands and feet to enact Your love in the world

May we like Mary 
Accept with humility and joy
Your gift 
Embracing the warmth and surprise 
Of the newborn Son of God.
AMEN
