Dear heavenly Father,

I thank you for the precious gift of your Son, Christ Jesus.

In this season of isolation renew my heart and spirit with your presence.

Forgive me for any way that I have grown cold in my walk with you and fill me once again with a passion for you.

Impart to me your heart for the broken, the hurting and those who are far from you.

I acknowledge you have entrusted me with the privilege of sharing this joy of Christ with others.

Holy Spirit go before me and prepare the hearts of those you will put on my path.

Open my eyes to the opportunities around me.

Let the joy of your presence be evident in my life this Christmas, and give me the boldness to share that joy with others.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
