Prayers for Christmas Eve Intercessions 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 Christmas Eve Intercessions

Almighty God and Father of light,
a child is born to us an a Son is given to us.
Your eternal Word leaped down from heaven
in the silent watches of the night,
and now your Church is filled with wonder
at the nearness of her God.
Open our hearts to receive His life
and increase our vision with the rising of dawn,
that our lives may be filled with His glory and His peace,
who lives and reigns forever and ever.


Your nativity, O Christ our God,
has shed the light of knowledge upon the world.
Through it,
those who had been star-worshipers
learned through a star to worship you,
O Sun of Justice,
and to recognize in you the one who rises
and who comes from on high.
O Lord, glory to you!


Lord God
we praise you for creating man,
and still more for restoring him in Christ.
Your Son shared our weakness:
may we share his glory,
for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God
forever and ever. Amen.
