Christmas Prayer 2014

To us a child is born, to us a son is given;
let us pray for the people he came to save.


Wonderful Counsellor,
you order all things with your wisdom:
help the Church to reveal the mystery of your love
and fill her with the Spirit of truth.


Mighty God,
the government is on your shoulders:
guide the leaders of the nations
and bring in your kingdom of justice and righteousness.


Everlasting Father,
you call us to live together in unity:
protect by your mercy all your children,
bless our families and renew our communities.


Prince of Peace,
you bring reconciliation through the cross:
by your healing power give to all who suffer
your gift of wholeness and peace.


Let us commend the world, to which Christ came,
to the mercy and protection of God.


AMEN
