A Beautiful Christmas Prayer



O God of love, who has given a new commandment through thy only begotten Son, that we should love one another, even as thou didst love us, the unworthy and the wandering, gave thy beloved Son for our life and salvation; we pray thee, Lord, give it to us, thy servants, in all time of our life on earth, a mind forgetful of past ill-will, a pure conscience and sincere thoughts, and a heart to love our brethren; for the sake of Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord and only Savior
