As we approach Christmas Lord, we base our prayers on the values given to us in The Magnificat. May we be kind enough to launch out on journeys to help others as Mary did.
May we recognise that nothing is impossible to God and that those who persevere in hope will find life.
We thank God for our vulnerability. And as Mary experienced doubt when asked to be God’s mother, may we overcome doubt when we are asked to do God’s will.
May the hungry be filled with good things and may God’s mercy be with us from generation to generation.
We offer all our prayers, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
As we prepare for Christmas Lord, we ask you to bless us with patience, joy and generosity. We acknowledge too the great blessings we have in friendship, family and love.
Bless us with food to eat and enough to share with the hungry.
May the Lord bless us with peace and may he take away our fears and doubts and bless us with a deep faith.
And may almighty God bless us in this world and in the next. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
