Loving Father, during this Christmas season,
Teach us to be an example of peace in the world, beginning in our own homes.
Open our hearts so we may extend kindness to those grieving, in pain, or alone.
Remind us to show gratitude for all we have.
Give us the strength to share the hope and faith of the season with all we encounter.
Loving Father, thank you for the gift of your Son. Let His light ignite compassion, grace and peace in each of us.
