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.
Prayer for Christmas: Shine In Me, Oh Holy Light
Here is a moment to lift our gaze and offer thanks to a Most Lovely Giver who illumines every heart preparing Him room.
My soul is freshly awake with wonder as I consider our blessed capacity as vessels to become Bethlehem where something new may be born.
This year, with the fragile physical, mental, and spiritual health of so many around the globe, my mind turns to the holy light we so desperately require to guide and heal 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 deeper into 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.
Shine in me, Oh Holy Light.

Will you join me in front of the fire (it’s out of frame, but I have a comfy cushion just for you as we cozy on down and listen to Sara’s soothing notes).
Maybe this melodic reminder will be just what your spirit never knew it needed:
