God of our Journeys Home ~
Grant us the Faith of Mary and Joseph, trusting that as we turn our hearts toward home, we will find You, and reconnect with our truest selves.
Grant us the Hope that along the way, you will be with us
through every blessing and challenge.
Grant us the Peace that comes in knowing that you desire to
be in our lives, and that you can show us the meaning of true
And grant us the Joy we find as we prepare our hearts and
lives to receive you once again. Like Mary and Joseph, we
would realize your presence in our lives requires care-filled
attention – as parents nurturing a newborn baby.
In the name of the Babe, lying in a manger, who would be the
King of Kings, Jesus Christ, your Son and our Savior, Amen.
