Praying with Wonder thru Christmas (Day 5)
Father in heaven, we thank you for the great joy of Christmas.
The coming of your Son, for us and for our salvation, is indeed a cause for great joy—and he himself the greatest of all joys.
Father, stir in us in this Advent season a joy in Christ that is increasingly high and wide and deep enough to endure the many trials and sufferings we face in this age.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
