Word for the day by Christian Education Forum
Feast of Nativity: Birth of Our Lord
Philip Manuel and Laila Anie Philip
Carmel MTC, Boston
PRAYERAlmighty Gracious Lord we come in our spiritual journey at the manger of Bethlehem following the shepherds and the wise men with an open sincere and contrite heart. For unto us is born this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord who is our Immanuel. Enable us to share this good news to all around us and rejoice in it while singing and shouting the greatest carol "glory to God in the highest and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased." Let the joy, love, peace and hope of Christmas radiate from us and become meaningful to the humanity through us. Amen.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Let us bow down not only at the manger as the wise men did but also at the cross where he paid the price of our sins.
