In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. Luke 2: 8
Pray for people working 0-hour contract jobs, migrant workers, and other jobs that you or I might not want to do.
With the shepherds of Bethlehem
help us, oh Lord, to stand in vigil on the eve of your Coming,
to run with haste to meet you,
to see your face in the faces of others
and to wake from our sleep as a new world is being born.
(this is part of a prayer on CAFOD sent by Miguel Alonzo Macias from Honduras)
Have a chat with someone: What was the first Christmas present you ever bought?
Plan a way to say thank you to your mail person and/or rubbish people this Christmas; it could be just a note or maybe a box of chocolates!
