Grace Before Christmas Dinner …

God of all gifts, we thank you for the many ways you have  blessed us this day.  We are grateful for each of those who are gathered around this table.  We ask you to bless us and our food, and to bless those we love who are not with us today.  In our gratitude and love, we remember your humble birth into our lives and pray for those who are are without enough to eat.  We remember the stable in which you were born and pray for those who have no place to live.  We remember your challenging message of caring and giving, and we pray for peace in families and nations throughout the world.  We bless you and give you thanks in your Spirit, who brings our hearts to life this Christmas Day and forever.  Amen.
