God our Father,
your Word has come among us in the Holy Child of Bethlehem:may the
light of faith illumine our hearts and shine in our words and
deeds; through him who is Christ the Lord.
A prayer for Christmas which has a lovely theme of light within
it. We can see in this prayer that the 'light' of God is seen
through the things that we do and say.
Illumine means 'make clear' or 'shine on'.
