A Christmas Prayer for the Forgotten

Dec 24, 2016 by

Dear Lord,

As we prepare for Your coming,

let us reflect on the journey Your

earthly parents took.

They were tired and alone,

yet there was no room for them at the inn.

There was no one to lend a helping hand.

Lord, help us to recognize those who may

need our help or love this Christmas.

Let us pray for those who have none.

We pray that those without loved ones

will still share in the season’s blessings.

We especially pray for those who feel

forgotten and unloved.

Lord, break our hearts for what breaks Yours.

Help us to see with Your eyes,

serve with Your hands, and to give of the

talents and treasures You have blessed us with.

We implore you, O Lord, to stretch forth

Your paternal arms to anyone feeling the

sting of loneliness or pangs of sadness

this Christmas season. Please bring them

into Your love and peace.
