A Collect for Christmas

Lord Jesus Christ, who came to us in the form of an innocent and helpless child, we praise you for your humility and goodness to us. May we take on vulnerability as you did, that in your way of peace, we might further your work of bringing joy to all people, through you who reigns in glory forever and ever with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger.’ – Luke 2:6-7
