star-of-bethlehem-yesWe come to adore you, little one.
On bended knee, with hopeful heart, and eyes stretched wide with wonder and awe.
The gentleness of your gaze draws us into the mystery of all that lies beyond, and in that place of falling into joy we yield all that we are to you.
And we pray.
For those who are broken,
Those who seek,
The trembling and the rumbling tummies,
The haggard spirits and the ragged lives.
For those who cling to the last best thing,
and those whose hearts pine for love.
Bless us, O Lord, whom we adore,
and turn our faces ever toward you.
For peace, for mercy, for the sake of all that is holy.
We come to adore you, O Christ.
