Lord, may we be like the Wise Men
who were guided to you by a star.
Give us the wisdom to seek you, light to guide us to you, courage to search until we find you,
graciousness to worship you
and generosity to lay our gifts before you,
who are our King and our God for ever and ever.
Amen. .
May the blessings of light be upon you,
Light without and light within,
And in all your comings and goings,
May you ever have a kindly greeting
From them you meet along the road.
May you always keep God at the centre of your lives
And know that as you reach out and search for God
That HE is reaching out for you and holding you.
Bless this house, o Lord, we pray.
Make it safe by night and day.
Bless these walls so firm and stout,
Keeping want and trouble out.
Bless the roof and chimney tall,
Let thy peace lie over all.
Bless the doors that they may prove
Ever open to joy and love.
Bless the windows shining bright,
Letting in God's heavenly light.
Bless the hearth a-blazing there,
With smoke ascending like a prayer.
Bless the people here within...
Keep them pure and free from sin.
Bless us all, that one day, we
May be fit, O lord, to dwell with Thee.

May Jesus, Mary and Joseph be at the centre and heart of your Christmas. May they always have a special and lasting place
in your heart and home.
God Bless you all and may God's presence
make a huge difference to your Christmas.
Please take the children to Church Celebrations
during this most precious season.
May your aim be to put Christ back into your Christmas celebrations.
That will make a positive difference.
With love and daily prayer.
