Here’s a prayer of invocation and confession for Christmas.
Christmas Opening Prayer
God of stable, stars and surprises,
of light and hope and new life:
open our eyes and hearts to your presence in our world;
forgive our obsession with property and possessions;
forgive our compromises and narrowness of vision.
Open us to your grace,
that we might hear again the song of the angels,
and respond with a song in our hearts, and in our lives. Amen.
