A Special Christmas Prayer


Dear Lord,


I don’t really understand

All your ways, all your plans

While I sit here in agony

Don’t have up my Christmas tree

No decorations to be seen

I lament my own tragedy




There are people who’ve lost



In the blink of an eye

Their Christmas, no, their lives

Are shattered

And I wish I could rebuild all their houses

Replace those things that really matter

Even help them find some kind

Of Christmas cheer

Especially for each child so dear

Though I’ve regained a bit of focus

Seeing what is truly a token

My heart is crushed at their devastation

May we all stop playing tradition or politician

Go and share true Christmas spirit

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen and amen.
