This prayer might be used on the 4th Sunday of Advent, Christmas Day or for a Lessons and Carols service.


This morning we have come to tell again

The story of angels and shepherds

Of disbelieving fathers and unlikely mothers


This morning we have come to hear again

The good, good news

Of love born among us

Of God here with us


This morning we prepare to receive the gift

Of a child born in a stable

A child who brings hope and light to the world.
