Christmas Anticipation Prayer
Hail and blessed be the hour and moment In which the Son of God was born Of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires, ￼
[here mention your request]
through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.
My Gift to the Christ-child for Christmas
Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work,
I give you my feet to go your way,
I give you my eyes to see as you see,
I give you my ears to hear as you hear,
I give you me tongue to speak as you speak,
I give you my heart that you may love in me your Father and all mankind.
I give you my spirit that it may be you who prays in me,
I give you my whole self, Lord, Jesus, that it may be You who grows, works, loves and prays in me. Amen.
