A Prayer before your Family Christmas Meal

Published on December 24, 2021

Loving God, on this Christmas day we give thanks that Jesus,
your Son, has come into our world bringing us gifts of peace
and joy. Bless us as we sit down together at this table for our
Christmas meal. Bless the food we share and help us to
remember those who are hungry. Be with our neighbours and
our friends, those who are lonely, sick or away from home. We
pray that our departed loved ones may sit now at your table in heaven. May the joy
of this feast give us strength and light, now and in the days ahead. Amen
