Here’s a Christmas prayer suitable for Christmas gatherings both inside and outside the church. It comes from the Worplesdon Parish website.
Lord God, Father of Jesus Christ,
be present, we pray, at our Christmas celebrations
which honour the birth of your Son,
and make them fine and full;
make our greetings sincere and our giving real;
make our eating and drinking a delight without becoming an excess;
enliven our relationships, both within our families and beyond them
with the spirit of the Christ Child. Amen.
