I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Christmas Prayer

Jesus,
Help us remember who you truly are,
at this time of year,
with Christmas near,
Not still the baby in the manger scene, but
Savior, Creator,
Almighty God and Prince of Peace,
The King who loved His human creatures so much
He became one,
God’s only Son,
That You might redeem all,
Who call upon Your name so sweet,
Who kneel humbly at Your feet.
May we bow at the cross, not the manger,
Obey the one who saves us,
Jesus Christ who loves and keeps us.
Help us accept You as Savior Lord,
listen for Your voice,
for it’s our best choice.
For if not,
we then,
crucify You once again.
Help us, Lord, to live for you,
not just at this holiday,
but in each and every coming day.

Amen.

Luke 2:1-20
