Prayer Litany for Christmas

In this season of shining hope, let us call to mind the prophet’s vision:
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,

Your light shall rise in the darkness
and your gloom be like the noon day. (Isaiah 58:10)

Let us pray.
God of tender compassion:
Hear the cry of your children whose hope is faint. Lord, in mercy,
Make bright our gloom and fill the hungry with every good thing.

Ruler of all nations, prince of peace:
Bring an end to violence and the starvation linked with war. Lord, in mercy,
Make bright our gloom and fill the hungry with every good thing.

Promised Savior, who will faithfully bring forth justice:
Overturn oppression and greed;
raise up those whom the world has brought low. Lord, in mercy,
Make bright our gloom and fill the hungry with every good thing.

Holy child, stable-born:
Provide warm shelter for the homeless poor,
and help us to see you in every guest. Lord, in mercy,
Make bright our gloom and fill the hungry with every good thing.

Infant of Bethlehem, brought in haste to Egypt:
Console all driven from home by cruel threat,
and protect all who must wander in search of refuge. Lord, in mercy,
Make bright our gloom and fill the hungry with every good thing.

O God, you have remembered your promise of mercy,
you have come to dwell among us, and you have revealed your glory.
Pour out upon us the Spirit of your love,
that we might pour ourselves out for the hungry and reveal your care to the afflicted.
In the name of Jesus we pray;
Amen.
