Christmas Day Intercessions

Jesus, born in a stable because there was no room in the inn;
We pray for the homeless

Jesus, born away from your hometown;
We pray for those away from their families this Christmas

Jesus, hunted by Herod;
We pray for those in danger, for those who live in war zones and those who are treated unjustly

Jesus, living as a refugee in Egypt;
We pray for all refugees in the world and for the situations they flea from

Jesus, visited by shepherds and wise men;
We pray that this Christmas, everyone who is lovely be visited by someone bringing comfort

Jesus, preacher and teacher;
We pray for all those who search for a meaning in life, may you provide them with people to guide them

Jesus, healer and deliverer;
We pray for healing for all those who are ill this Christmas

Jesus, born as one of us;
We pray today that peace, hope and love of you be known and felt around the world.

Jesus, we pray to you knowing that you hear us,
that you intercede for us
and that you answer our prayers.
