My Christmas Prayer

Last evening, I was at the annual St. Joseph Christmas program. The church was warm and inviting with candles, wreaths, lights, and a welcoming community gathered to celebrate the season. As the kindergarten class lined up before me, all decked out with gold halos on their heads to sing Joy to the World, I was overwhelmed with grief. In the face of each child, I was thinking of the children that lost their lives in Sandy Hook. I thought in the midst of this loving season, there is so much pain, sadness, and sickness.

For those of you that are suffering, I want to share one of my favorite holiday songs by BeBe Winans.

Let Love rule and reign!

This is my Christmas Prayer

I pray for peace
Blessings and honor
Heaven right earth’s despair
This is my Christmas prayer

For those that grieve
God will bring comfort
Laughter will rapture there
This is my Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas prayer

I pray for you (Yes I know you do)
That your triumph and conquer
Poses the strength you need to bare
This is my Christmas prayer

For those in need
There would be plenty
And each others burdens share
Oh, this is my Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas prayer, Oh

So let hope fill our hearts (Let’s let hope fill our hearts)
Shine the light through the dark
All around the world
And everywhere
I will pray
This Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas
This is my Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas prayer
This is my Christmas prayer
