Prayers for Advent and Christmas A selection of contemporary, traditional and ancient Xmas pray for the seasons of Advent and Merry Christmas Prayer. As we approach the holiday season, we are faced with yet another opportunity to pause in the midst of all the excitement, decorations, and commercialization, to consider again the origin of Christmas the One whose birth we celebrate.
Lord, in this holy season of Christmas Prayer and song and laughter, we praise you for the great wonders you have sent us: for shining star and angel's song, for infant's cry in lowly manger. We praise you for the Word made flesh in a little Child. We behold his glory, and are bathed in its radiance. Let's not forget the true meaning of why we celebrate during this time of year. Celebrate the baby Jesus and trust Him as Savior today.
Be with us as we sing the ironies of Merry Christmas Prayers, the incomprehensible comprehended, the poetry made hard fact, the helpless Babe who cracks the world asunder. You may read aloud these Prayers for Christmas with family members or say them silently with sincerity and faith to experience peace of mind.
Prayers for Advent and Christmas
Lamb of God,
You once came to rid the world of sin;
cleanse me now from every stain of sin.
Lord, you came to save what was lost;
come once again with Your salvific power
so that those You redeemed will not be punished.
I have come to know You in faith;
may; I have unending joy
when You come again in glory.
Come, Sun and Savior, to embrace Our gloomy world,
its weary race,
As groom to bride, as bride to groom:
The wedding chamber, Mary's womb.
At your great Name, O Jesus, now
All knees must bend, all hearts must bow;
All things on earth with one accord,
Like those in heaven, shall call you Lord.
Come in your holy might, we pray,
Redeem us for eternal day;
Defend us while we dwell below,
From all assaults of our dread foe.
