Tis the Season to…Pause and Pray at the Manger

nativity-596934_1920 (2)

It’s finally here! The Christmas season. Time to remember what the season is all about. Time to pause and pray before a manger. May I suggest Prayer at the Manger written by my friend Cinda DeVet? It will only take a minute, and the Child is waiting. Waiting for you.

Enjoy the meditation and have a peaceful and blessed Christmas.

Prayer at the Manger

Child within me,

Child who loves the child I am,

Child who walks with me always,

Open my heart to You.

 

Let me know Your peace.

Let me know Your littleness,

Win me by Your sweet dependence

On Mary and Joseph.

 

How can it happen

That the Almighty God

Lies helpless,

An infant,

In an animal shelter?

Tell me, Baby Savior.

 

Your vivid infant eyes,

Wide and wise

Hold mine for a long timelessness

And impart all I need to absorb.

Always, always Love.

 

Child within me,

Child who loves the child I am,

Child who walks with me always,

Open my heart to You.

Cinda DeVet
