O Heavenly Father,
as we prepare to celebrate
the birth of your Son,
let us not lose sight of
spiritual preparation.
All the activities of programs,
buying, wrapping, and cooking
are fun, but without taking time
to read and reflect on the meaning
of Christ’s birthday to us,
we may miss the point of it all.
Open our hearts and minds,
O Heavenly Father,
to the coming
of your Spirit within
to guide us in our preparation.

Mark 1:2:
As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way; the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.’”

Song from the musical Godspell: Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord
