This Christmas, we would like to express our gratitude to you, Oh lord.
We know that for everything that we have we owe them all to you.
We are thankful for our health, food and warm shelter.
We are thankful for our loving friends and families.
We are thankful for the challenges that assail us every morning.
We thank you for your all-abounding love and generosity.
May we beseech you now to bless all peoples and all nations.
That they would recognize your omniscience and omnipresence.
May they recognize your vital role in their daily lives.
All these we ask, through your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
