And the angel said to them,
"Be not afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of a great joy
which will come to all the people;
for to you is born this day in the city of David
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be a sign for you:
you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths
and lying in a manger."
And suddenly there was with the angel
a multitude of the heavenly host
praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!"
Let the angels sing and praise God!
Jesus, teach us to not be afraid.
Let there be no fear in our lives.
You are in control of everything.
Thank you for coming to this world to save us.
You came to save us from our sins.
We thank you, O Lord.
Help us to listen to the good news proclaimed.
Open our ears to hear your words, O Lord.
Thanks for saving us.
We rejoice in your coming.
Bless us, O Lord, this day.
Make us your children.
Make us lowly and humble like you.
You are the light that came into the darkness.
Light our way, O Lord.
Show us the way.
Help us to forgive anyone we need to today.
Bless our families.
