As the rush continues for many folks to cross off to-dos on the holiday list, here is a whispered Christmas prayer and a brief pause. May we all inhale peace deep into our hearts this day to transform any fear. And may we exhale gentleness into the weary world. Thank you for considering Prayer for Christmas: Shine In Me, Oh Holy Light.
Prayer for Christmas: Shine In Me, Oh Holy Light
Here is a moment to lift our gaze and offer thanks to a Holy Maker and Lovely Giver who lights every heart preparing Him room.
My soul is fully awake with wonder as I consider my capacity as a vessel to become a Bethlehem where something new may be born.
This year, with health so fragile and a will so strong, my thoughts turn to holy light guiding and healing us right where we are.
And so I pray…
Holy, Holy Maker of all things beautiful and good, fill your lowly servant (so prone to darkness and suffering) with a fresh hope and with sacred light.
Oh, Magnificent Creator, help your child surrender every shadow obscuring the truth of who you are, of who she is.
Help us, oh Lord, to reflect your warm rays of love unto a world shivering with longing and confusion.
Be with us as we live, breathe and find our being in you.
As we move through problems or prosperity, may we seek your face and feel your shining approval.
Oh, Father, may we ever seek the grace to be sustained and strengthened by your trustworthy energy.
Thank you for dwelling in us as a Holy Presence closer than our own heartbeat.
May we surrender all those cares and treasures to which we cling, knowing that only then will we be truly free.
Holy Light, this Christmas, come as a Divine lamp to the corners of our souls.
For we know that your healing beauty will right every wrong and flicker as an eternal flame, come what may.
Renew us this day.
Be near in this season of waiting.
Forgive us for all the ways we fail to rise to thy divine purposes.
Help us to look into the night sky for a shimmering sign.
May we trust and follow that star.
Oh, may it lead us into deeper humility and faith.
May our journey carry us through mysterious skies into fresh hope and Perfect Love.
I pray all of this with a spirit of humble unknowing.
And I bow to you with joy burning in my heart.
I come with a wide imagination glowing with your ever-flickering flame.
And as I anticipate the emergence of the Prince of Peace, I offer the stable of my heart.
Shine in me, Oh Holy Light.
