A Christmas Prayer of Thankfulness

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for leaving the halls of Heaven to be born on earth, then to live and die amongst us and thereby to change the world—and my life.

Though You came as a little child, Your warmth, love, and peace soon spread throughout the whole earth. Your love is ready to enter into every heart that welcomes You.

Thank You for what Christmas means—that whether or not I have family and friends, good times or bad, I will always have You. I will always have Your love—love that has stood the test of time, love that saved me and so many others like me.

Jesus, the stars and angels welcomed Your birth, as I welcome You into my heart with praise and thankfulness. —Alex Peterson
