A CHRISTMAS PRAYER
With grateful hearts this Christmas
we call upon you our Dear Lord,
To lead us and to guide us
As daily we implore
your holy will before us
helping those you call your own,
innocent, homeless children
both living and unborn.
Your most vulnerable and discarded
we come to serve each day
Through the merits of the many
who sacrifice and pray.
The souls sent to our doorstep
come to understand your claim
To build a life and show your plan
to those you call by name.
With hearts filled with thanksgiving
We raise our eyes to you
So each day all find the courage
to do as you would do.
