Christmas Prayer for Our Country

O Lord in heaven,

The leaves on the trees were beautiful in all their colors;

The children the same.

The leaves have now fallen;

The children the same.

And God You wept.


This is a season of giving,

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.”

The wise men gave gifts to the Christ Child.

Jesus Himself gave His Own Life for us.

How is it this year, Lord, that we have experienced a taking?


A taking of our very own littles ones and wonderful ones.

And God You wept, and God we weep.


Though much joy has been taken, You said,

“Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you:

Not as the world giveth, give I unto you.”

“I have told you these things,

So that in Me you may have peace.”

Jesus, You also spoke, “In this world you will have trouble.

But take heart! I have overcome the world.”


May the planting of these souls in the ground

Bring a glorious crop of goodness this season and always

That reflect Your Own Goodness God toward us.

Though we know not how,

Let these seeds bring forth good fruit.

In the Name of Your Only Son, Jesus. Amen.
