The Meaning of Christmas


There has been a a criticism of Christmas celebrations are becoming highly materialistic in nature and the true meaning of Christmas is lost. There is only exchange of gift rather the warmth of compassion, sending of cards perfunctorily rather than out of love, hosting Christmas parties instead of reaching out the hands of help to the unprivileged ones. 

I was surfing the net and found some nice Christmas prayers that I would like to share with all of you.


A PRAYER OF THANKS
Max Lucado

Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. 
Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. 
And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. 
I place my trust in You to be my Savior. 
Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for You. Amen


THANK YOU, LORD,
for the gift of Your love.
May I be a shining
example of that love to others.
Amen.
