Laughter and joy
Around the table
Upon the floor
Now empty chairs
Of those who passed
Under the tree
A gift given
This morning Lord I pray for those who will experience a first Christmas without a loved one. May they find comfort in you dear Lord and in those who gather with them. I pray your peace would envelope them in their grief. In my tears, as I miss my loved ones, I pray they would know there is shared grief — that they would know they are not alone. May they feel your presence dear Lord in a powerful way. May we find strength for the new year in you dear Lord. Birth within us a deeper faith. In the midst of our tears may we celebrate the eternal hope born in a humble stable. May we sing a new song of praise.
I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear And will trust in the LORD. – Psalm 40:1-3 (NASB)
