A Prayer for Christmas Peace


Prince of Peace,

We know peace is possible

only through you.

In our days full

of planning and cleaning

shopping and wrapping

baking and decorating

we need your peace

which passes all understanding.

Prince of Peace,

we lay before you

our hustle and bustle,

our hurts and trials,

our anxiety and fear.

Let our hearts find no rest

except when we seek you.

Let none of our searching

lead to satisfaction

outside you.

Lead our hearts to peace.

Help us remember

peace once came through the impossible:

a virgin’s womb holding

the son of God, the Prince of Peace.

Help us live out busy December

knowing deep inside

peace is possible

only through you,

peace is possible

in our impossible,

peace is ready

and waiting.

Join me December 6-23, 2016 for a series of Christmas Prayers.
