Christmas Prayer

Loving One
Presence in the darkness
Divine illumination
Long-awaited liberator
Come and dwell among us.
Come and make a home within us.
Come and show us the way that leads to life.

Strengthen us for what we face.
Strengthen us for what is to come.
Strengthen us to speak the hope that is within us.
Fill us with visions of the world we know is possible.
Fill us with tenacity to transform oppression.
Fill us with power to claim our full humanity.
Root us deep, drawing from the wells of liberation that never run dry.
Amen.
