Advent Prayer for Children & Families – Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson, Colorado USA

Dear God,
At Advent, it’s easy to only think about lights
And presents and parties.
Help us remember the most important things this season:
The love of our parents and family,
The beauty of the world,
The many things we have to be thankful for,
Friends and food and shelter.
Help us remember that Christmas is not about presents.
It is about love:
Your love coming into the world.
Us receiving your love
And us being able to give your love away.
Amen.
