Prayer – X is for Christmas

Our former minister, Revd. Ruth Dillon is writing a series of prayers – this is the one for June.




They all remind me of Xmas,

The familiar story, told year after year.


Without Christmas, Lord,

we would not have the Cross.

Without the Cross,

we would not have the resurrection.

Without the resurrection,

we would not be reconciled.

Without being reconciled,

we would always live apart from you .


Hurrah for Xmas!


Babe of Bethlehem,

as I gaze at your innocence in the manger,

may your wondrous journey

bring me ever closer to you and your love for me.
