Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

Blessing of the Christmas Tree Prayer


All make the Sign of the Cross. 
A member of the family turns the lights of the tree on and the blessing is then recited: 

Lord our God, We praise you for the light of creation: the sun, the moon, and the stars of the night. We praise you for the light of Israel: The Law, the prophets, and the wisdom of the Scriptures. We praise you for Jesus Christ, your Son: he is Emmanuel, God-with-us, the Prince of Peace, who fills us with the wonder of your love. Lord God, Let your blessing come upon us as we illumine this tree. May the light and cheer it gives us be a sign of the joy that fills our hearts. May all who delight in this tree come to the knowledge and joy of salvation. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
