Christmas — A Child Is Born
“A child is born to us;
a son is given to us.” 
Christmas — Child in a Manger
“We bend our knee before the Child in the manger who came to bring the tenderness of God upon the earth.” 
Christmas — New Birth
“Give us a new birth as we celebrate the beginning of your Son's life on earth.” 
Christmas — God of Gifts 
“God of Gifts, you love us so much that you send your son as a gift to us. Praise to you, God. Glory for the birthday of Jesus!” 
Christmas — Newborn God 
“As we come to remember your birth, Newborn God, fill us with the light, hope and the peace that will allow us to transform the world.” 
Christmas — Peace on Earth
“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
