Christmas Prayer: Give Thanks to God

This is a prayer we used in our Children’s Christmas Praise yesterday morning:

Give thanks to God
for the light has come:

a light in a dark stable,

a light for darkened lives,

a light which shines in every place,

the light of eternal truth

Give thanks to God

for the truth has come

truth that challenges the proud,

truth that lifts up the lowly,

truth that brings justice and hope,

the truth of eternal life.

Give thanks to God

for the life has come:

the life of God in a new born child,

life vulnerable and precious.

Life which conquers death’s power,

the new life of the Kingdom of God.

Give thanks to God

for the King has come:

a King who brings peace,

a King who brings healing,

a King who shares our weakness,

a gentle King whose name is love

Lord Jesus Christ,

whose coming sets us free,

let your light shine in us,

your truth change us,

your life renew us,

that we may worship you

as the Holy Child of Christmas

and the King of Heaven
