For a child is born,
The world rejoices.
Shepherds and angels proclaim his birth.
This is Jesus, the Lord,
Our Savior and brother,
Bearing God's peace to the earth.
Our homemade Advent wreath with all candles lit.
God our Father, it is Christmas at last. Thank you for this big celebration. We are happy because you have given us your greatest gift of love: Jesus, your Son. We welcome Jesus and we thank you for all the love, hope, and peace he brings us. Help us to be like Jesus and bring love, hope and peace to each other. Let the love in our family reach out to everyone we meet today, and tomorrow, and every day. Amen.
(Please note that the prayers and images that we use for our Advent wreath prayer cube came from somewhere else, but unfortunately I don't remember where.)
