Prayers of the Faithful

Reminded of God’s steadfast love and fidelity revealed through this newborn Child, we bring our prayers before the Lord.

  • For the Church, the Body of Christ in the world, and for her prophetic witness to all, let us pray to the Lord.

  • For peace in the world, and for the salvation of souls, let us pray to the Lord.

  • For all who are sick, suffering, and dying, and for those who love and care for them, let us pray to the Lord.

  • For all who have died, may our gracious God welcome them into their eternal home to praise him forever, let us pray to the Lord.

  • For the intentions we ask at this time...., let us pray to the Lord

Heavenly Father, you showed your love for us by sending your Son. We trust in that love as we present to you these needs of your people, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Meditation Hymn

O Holy Night, A Adam
00:00 / 04:51

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, 
Thy will be done
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Closing Prayer

Grant us, Lord,

as we honor with joyful devotion

the Nativity of your Son,
that we may come to know with fullness of faith

the hidden depths of this mystery

and to love them ever more and more.

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen
