A Christmas Prayer

Christ, for whom there was no room in the inn,
give courage to all who are homeless;
in your mercy
hear our prayer.

 

Christ, who fled into Egypt,
give comfort to all refugees;
in your mercy
hear our prayer.

 

Christ, who fasted in the desert,
give relief to all who are starving;
in your mercy
hear our prayer.

 

Christ, who hung in agony on the cross,
give strength to all who suffer;
in your mercy
hear our prayer.

 

Lord of the Church
hear our prayer,
and make us one in heart and mind
to serve you with joy for ever. Amen.
