Christmas Prayers

The festival of Christmas is celebrated with fun as well as religious fervor. People would pray to the Almighty for health, wealth and prosperity for them and their loved ones. A number of traditions are followed, which mark the celebrations of the festival. Churches across the globe conduct special prayers in the midnight of Christmas Eve, to commemorate the birth of Lord Jesus Christ. As a part of the customs, Christians chant prayers before every meal, and following the ritual during Christmas becomes even more important. In the article, we have given some of the common prayers for Christmas.

Prayers For Christmas

Not Only Christmas Day

Lord, this is my prayer 
Not only on Christmas Day 
But until I see You face to face 
May I live my life this way: 

Just like the baby Jesus 
I ever hope to be, 
Resting in Your loving arms 
Trusting in Your sovereignty. 

And like the growing Christ child 
In wisdom daily learning, 
May I ever seek to know You 
With my mind and spirit yearning. 

Like the Son so faithful 
Let me follow in Your light, 
Meek and bold, humble and strong 
Not afraid to face the night. 

Nor cowardly to suffer 
And stand for truth alone, 
Knowing that Your kingdom 
Awaits my going home. 

Not afraid to sacrifice 
Though great may be the cost, 
Mindful how You rescued me 
From broken-hearted loss. 

Like my risen Savior 
The babe, the child, the Son, 
May my life forever speak 
Of who You are and all You've done. 

So while this world rejoices 
And celebrates Your birth, 
I treasure You, the greatest gift 
Unequaled in Your worth. 

I long to hear the same words 
That welcomed home Your Son, 
"Come, good and faithful servant," 
Your Master says, "Well done." 

And may heaven welcome others 
Who will join with me in praise 
Because I lived for Jesus Christ 
- Mary Fairchild

A Christmas Prayer

Loving Father, Help us remember the birth of Jesus, 
That we may share in the song of the angels, 
The gladness of the shepherds, 
And worship of the wise men. 

Close the door of hate 
And open the door of love all over the world. 
Let kindness come with every gift 
And good desires with every greeting. 
Deliver us from evil by the blessing, which Christ brings 
And teach us to be merry with clear hearts. 

May the Christmas morning make us 
Happy to be thy children 
And Christmas evening bring us 
To our beds with grateful thoughts 
Forgiving and forgiven
For Jesus sake
- Robert Louis Stevenson

Christmas Tree Blessing

Holy Creator of Trees,
Bless with your abundant grace
This our Christmas tree as a symbol of joy.
May its evergreen branches be a sign
Of your never-fading promises
May its colorful lights and ornaments call us
To decorate with love our home and our world
May the gifts that surround this tree
Be symbols of the gifts we have received
From the tree of Christ’s cross
Holy christmas tree within our home,
May joy and peace come and nest 
In your branches and in our hearts
