Christmas Prayer

As you spend your Christmas day with loved ones exchanging gifts and drinking eggnog, please keep your hearts and prayers open to those not as fortunate.  No matter how bad you think things are, there is always someone worse off than you are.

Please keep in your hearts and prayers all those who are without the ones they love today whether they are separated due to distance, estrangement or death.  Especially those who are dealing with the very first Christmas without that loved one, as the first is always the most difficult.

Please keep in your hearts and prayers all of our military men and women serving overseas or at home.  Keep their families who are without them this Christmas and those who are mourning the loss of a loved service man or woman in your hearts and prayers.

Please keep in your hearts and prayers the homeless and the destitute.  Those without enough to eat, insufficient shelter and heat, lack of warm clothes or a place to lay their heads at night.  Those without a place to go and be merry this Christmas.

Please keep in your hearts and prayers those suffering from an illness.  Whether that illness be mental or physical.  Those that suffer from addictions, because the holidays are often the most difficult time to stay sober.  Those that cannot recall Christmases past.  Those that cannot get out to see family.  Those suffering great pain.

Please keep in your hearts and prayers the lonely.  Lonely in their hearts whether surrounded by loved ones or truly all alone.

Please keep in your hearts and prayers those around the world living in poverty, war and fear.


I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy Chanukah.
