As we pray this Christmas Prayer, we invite Jesus into our hearts.
Glory to God in the highest!
My precious Lord, Jesus,
I adore You with profound love and rejoice in the celebration of Your birth.
Your love for us is unfathomable,
it is glorious
and deeply personal.
You chose to come and dwell among us,
being born into poverty, rejection and humility.
Yet Your mother knew whom she bore,
Her heart was filled with the tenderest love
as she adored her Child and her God.
Help me, dear Lord.
to come to love You with the heart of Your mother.
Invite me to adore You with St. Joseph and the poor shepherds.
Reveal to me the glorious power of Your birth
and change my life on account of this perfect gift of Yourself.
I love You, dear Lord Jesus.
Help me to love You with all my heart.
Newborn Savior of the World,
I trust in You.
Mother Mary and St. Joseph,
Pray for me and for all.

A Christmas Prayer helps us to remain focused on the true meaning of Christmas: the celebration of the birth of Our Lord, Jesus Christ-God made man. After we have prepared our hearts during Advent, we now receive Jesus as a newborn babe. We can use what we have learned during Advent about our faith, God, and ourselves, to celebrate the amazing reality of Christ’s birth on Christmas.
