Dear Lord, light a flame in our hearts. It’s Christmas Eve. May the story of your birth burn to the depth of our souls. Prepare us, O Lord, to know you, to love you, to worship you and to follow your ways. I ask in your precious name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”(Luke 2:14 ESV)
