Christmas Eve Prayer header image

A Love Born of Mary

Honor the greatest gift of all this Christmas with this prayer written by Kelly Adamson, director of Residence Life Ministry and the Campus Ministry Graduate Assistant Program.


Christmas Eve Prayer
upon reading the first chapter of the Gospel of Matthew

Loving God, who comes to us in each generation,
we give you thanks for the generations
          of faithful witnesses who have preceded us.
We are mindful that we are part of this long line of Your people.
We are, as they were, faithful and fallen;
          imperfect and yet perfectly loved by You.
Into this imperfect line you sent Jesus,
          Your Perfect Love incarnate.
Matthew says, “This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about”
          through courage of Mary and Joseph
                    to listen and respond to the voice of Love
                    to shoulder the judgement of others for the sake of Love
                    to bring Love into the world
          and so, O God, may this be how Jesus is born in us anew this evening
                    and every evening to follow
          Love born into our families and into our communities
          Love born into our hearts and into the heart of the world.
We pray all these things in the name of Jesus, Son of God, Love Incarnate
          Born of Mary.

Amen.
(Kelly Adamson)
