Christmas Eve 2018: Prayers of the Faithful and Nativity Art

Version 2

Christmas Eve

December 24, 2018

Let us pray to be open to the miracles among us this Christmas Eve. May our restless hearts rejoice where faith is born. Give us new hope and genuine love in this silent night.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for the healing mission of the Church. For people searching for healthy food, adequate shelter and comfort for their ailing bodies. May the lonely and tired be wrapped in swaddling clothes in this holy night. May forgiveness find a home on earth.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for Pope Francis and all Church leaders, that they may discover the love of the Incarnation. That hope may be made flesh for all people, especially our children within the Church, no matter our race, language or circumstance.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray that children’s voices be heard on Christmas Eve. We pray for our own grandchildren far and near. For foster children, stepchildren, children at our country’s border and our children in jails. We pray for children trapped in cruelty and trafficking.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for comforting peace on earth. We pray for people who face tragedies of violence, fires, floods and addictions. That Jesus-made-flesh may show us how to become people of loving service. That peacefulness may be made known in every human heart.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our beloved dead, especially for those who have died since last Christmas Eve. May our loved ones finally rest in the comfort of Jesus’ face, within his presence for all eternity. At this Mass we remember…

We pray to the Lord.
