Prayer of the Day
Give to us, O God, a heart transformed by grace and a life inspired by humility. Grant us fullness of faith, ﬁrmness of hope and fervency of love. Let our one desire be conformity to your perfect will; through Christ our Lord. Amen.Thomas More (1478-1535)
Incarnational God, we celebrate your coming as a baby in the manger but where can we meet you today?
Have we imprisoned you in a frenzy of acquisition not just at Christmas but throughout the year, failing to recognise you in the needs of so many less-privileged than ourselves?
May the spirit of the resurrected Jesus burst open the doors of our hearts, stretch out our hands and liberate your incarnational presence to transform our needy world. Amen.
