Praise and glory to you, O Lord Jesus Christ for coming to us, in fulfilling our lives, in making our joy complete. Unfortunately, no one seem to be waiting for you or worst, we live as if you have not come at all.

How sad, O Lord, that often even if we are so excited with Christmas, it does not necessarily mean we are excited of you as a person coming to us. Even if we love to sing and hear that carol “Joy to the World”, we are not really joyful because our hearts are far from you.

Forgive us, Jesus, in being focused with time and dates, than with your person and with your coming.

The more we get focused with dates and gifts and carols and other trimmings of Christmas, the less we think of you and of others too.

Open our hearts to receive you in us.

On that day it will be said: “Behold our God, to whom we looked to save us! This is the Lord for whom we looked; let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!” For the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain.

Isaiah 25:9-10

Open our hearts to you, Jesus, that you are more than enough than anything we could wish for.

Make us desire more of you than of things so we may always have an abundance of you as our “bread” or everything in this life. Amen.
