Prayers for candle-lighting

The Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
[Light four candles]
For nothing is impossible with God.
The Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.

Today is Christmas. We welcome the newborn Jesus Christ into the world and into our
lives anew. Jesus is the one whose humility and faithfulness God consistently recognizes
and honors. He is the one whose humility and faithful obedience to the word of God in
his life will lead him ultimately to a shameful death on the cross. Jesus Christ is also the
one whom God will one day raise from the dead to demonstrate for us once and for all
time that nothing is impossible with God!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Let us welcome the newborn Jesus Christ into our lives today!

Closing Prayer for Our Study.

O God, who wonderfully created, and yet more wonderfully
restored, the dignity of human nature: Grant that we may
share the divine life of him who humbled himself to share
our humanity, your Son Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns
with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen. (Collect for the Second Sunday After Christmas Day).
