Open The Door of Love

                  A  Christmas Prayer      by    Robert Louis  Stephenson

  Loving Father,
  Help us remember the birth of Jesus
  that we may share in the song of the angels,
  the gladness of the shepherds, 
  and worship of the wise men.

  Close the door of hate
  and open the door of love all over the world.
  Let kindness come with every gift
  and good desires with every greeting.
  Deliver us from evil by the blessing
  which Christ brings,
  and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
  May the Christmas morning
  make us happy to be thy children,
  and Christmas evening bring us to our beds
  with grateful thoughts,
  forgiving and forgiven,
  for Jesus' sake.
