A Christmas Prayer

Like the angels,
may my heart burst forth in praise at Your coming.

Like the shepherds,
may I quickly follow You to share Your good news with the world.

Like Mary,
may I willingly submit to Your plan for my life.

Like Joseph,
may I trust Your word over the norms of the day.

Like the Magi,
may I give up comfort and risk everything to follow You.

Like Simeon,
may I wait patiently for You to reveal Your plan.

Like Anna,
may I spend my life serving and loving You.

Luke 1:38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
