The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5)
God our Father, you spoke to the prophets of old
of a Saviour who would bring peace.
You helped them to spread the joyful message of his coming kingdom.
Help us, as we prepare to celebrate his birth,
to share with those around us the good news of your power and love.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, the light who is coming into the world. Amen.
