Prayer for Christmas: Shine In Me, Oh Holy Light

As the season marches on and we feel the highs and lows of holiday 2020 stirring us, here is a whispered Christmas prayer and a brief pause. May we all inhale peace deep into our hearts this day to transform all fear. May we exhale gentleness unto the weary world. For the spirit of our respiration indeed matters. Thank you for considering Prayer for Christmas: Shine In Me, Oh Holy Light.
