Christmas Resources

Christmas

Let us pray (in silence) [that through celebrating the Incarnation we will deepen our relationship with Christ]

pause

God,
year by year you make us glad
with the hope of our redemption,
grant that we who joyfully receive your only begotten Son as our Redeemer
may with sure confidence behold him when he comes as our judge;
who is alive with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God now and for ever.
Amen.

The commentary and history of the above shared collect is here.

Let us pray (in silence) [with joy and hope as we await the dawning of God’s brightness]

pause

God,
you have made this most holy night
radiant with the splendour of the true light,
may we who even now obscurely share the mystery of your light
come to enjoy your light in fullness,
who is alive with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God now and for ever.
Amen.

The commentary and history of the above shared collect is here.

Let us pray (in silence) [that we may grow into the life promised at Christmas]

Pause

God, [or God of incarnation]
you wonderfully created
and yet more wonderfully restored
the dignity of human nature;
grant that we may share the divine life
of the one who came to share our humanity,
Jesus Christ, our Saviour
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

The commentary and history of the above shared collect is here.

The above three collects form part of my free Book of Prayers in Common with history and commentary.
