Christmas - 2019

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  Matthew 1:21

Prayer for today


Lord Jesus,

We thank you for coming into this world.

We wonder that you were born as a baby,

that you grew up into adulthood,

that you had a relationship with your parents,

that you are like us.


Within the assurance that you understand all that troubles us,

we bring you our prayers for the world,

and especially today we pray for our young people

who are having to grow up in the midst of a pandemic

We pray for their protection and safety,

that they would know just how important they are to us,

that they would have self-worth.

Help us to listen to them and to learn from them.


As we consider Jesus’ parents

We pray for all who parent children and young people today,

for all who teach them,

for all who are separated from their children.

Bless them in all that they do to care,

especially in these difficult days.


Thought for the day (based on Luke 2:41-52).                                  Luke’s gospel tells us of Jesus’ birth and we wonder that God came to earth as a baby, dependent on his parents for everything. This later story invites us to wonder that Jesus grew up, learned to walk and to talk, discovered what was important to him, went through puberty, argued with his parents, became independent. This is God in human form, living as we live, growing as we grow. How amazing is that!
