Christmas Eve/Day 2022: Prayers of the Faithful

Christmas Eve/Day 2022

December 24/25, 2022

Let us pray for renewal within our Church this holy day. May we serve basking in the grace of the Incarnation. May we love all people because of God’s fidelity toward us.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for miracles to be born in our world this Christmas. May the Church share the Light of Christ in the dark corners of injustice and sin. May hope lift up the weary.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to find Christ Jesus in the unexpected places in our lives. May divine compassion heal our complicated lives. May the Incarnation bring peace in every turmoil and misfortune under heaven.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for children who do not know love this Christmas. May our orphans be given new relationships for their survival. May our addicted youth find healing and comfort. May all children be cuddled in blankets of mercy.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray to wrap people surviving poverty in swaddling clothes. May the hungry find genuine nourishment in our acts of justice. May our homeless find true safety in the shelter we provide.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for love to be born in hatred. May guns be silenced this holy night. May the darkness of racism, homophobia, religious divisions, wars, and every violence be brought into the light of faith, trust, and calm.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for harmony among us at our family tables this Christmas. May all hardships and regrets not hinder us from joy. May we be satisfied, comforted, and supported among our loved ones.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our loved ones who have died since last Christmas. May our beloved dead know only God’s mercy for all eternity.

We pray to the Lord.
