Prayer for December 30

Prayer for December 30: Please pray with me. On this sixth day of the Christmas season, we pray that you would open us to receive a unique gift – the gift of life.  Turn us from our attachment and fascination with death – death in violence, in our culture, in our wants and desires, in unwanted people of all ages, in broken relationships, in war, in entertainment, in how we talk, in how we act towards others and the rest of creation.  The Good News of your birth means that the world has changed.  This wasn’t just something that happened once and is done and over.  You continue to come into our world every day and turn the world right-side-up.  Make us a part of this Good News by living out your call to us to be instruments of life.  Amen.
