My Christmas Prayer
By Barbara Warren 
For those of us who face the season
With heavy hearts, for whatever reason.

For those of us who don't feel joy
When seeing shiny children's toys,

For those of us with no twinkling lights,
To brighten all our Christmas nights,

For those of us who lack holiday cheer--
Pray let us open our eyes and ears,

To understand, to see and hear it,
The real story of the Christmas spirit:

That Christ did come on Christmas Day
To pave the road and lead the way,

To prove His love and show He cared,
To promise of a Heaven shared
By those of us who see the light,
And welcome Christ on Christmas night.
