Christmas is an important holiday to every Christian. It is a day of giving, caring, family, and prayer. Below are a few Christmas prayers you can say during this great and holy day.

Prayer for Dinner

Dear God,

Thank you for all that you have given us this past year. Even though we have all had our hardships, your love and care has helped us through them. We thank you for all that you have done and how you help us continue to be a strong family. Thank you for this food, the roof that we are under, and the love in our hearts.

Amen

Prayer for Jesus

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for teaching the world the message of God and dying for our sins.

Amen

The Poem Prayer said by Pope John Paul II for Christmas Day in 1994

Wipe away, Baby Jesus, the tears of children! 
Embrace the sick and the elderly! 
Move men to lay down their arms 
and to draw close in a universal embrace of peace! 
Invite the peoples, O merciful Jesus,
to tear down the walls created 
by poverty and unemployment, by ignorance and indifference,
by discrimination and intolerance.
It is you, O Divine Child of Bethlehem, 
who save us, freeing us from sin.
It is you who are the true and only Saviour, 
whom humanity often searches for with uncertainty. 
God of peace, gift of peace for all of humanity,
come to live in the heart of every individual and of every family.
Be our peace and our joy! 
Amen!
