A (Blue) Christmas Prayer

Almighty God,
Be with those who are dreading the Christmas season this year.
Be with those for whom loss and despair occlude hope and light.
Be with those facing empty chairs at their tables and those who will sit at their tables alone.
Be with those for whom this season reminds them of where they have failed and what they have lost.
Be with those who are challenged financially, fight depression or are gripped by illness.
Hold each of these precious people in your arms.
Be the most real thing in their lives
And give them eyes to see the hope represented in the Christ.
We pray this in the strong name of Jesus…Amen!

-Rev. Shane L. Bishop has been the Sr. Pastor at Christ Church in Fairview Heights, Illinois since 1997.
