Introduction:

Christmas dinner prayers and blessings begin a blessed day of thankfulness and family times. Whether you are at a big family gathering or a small, quiet dinner, there are some beautiful Christmas prayers and blessings to chose from here.

A Grace For Christmas Day Dinner

"Father, We thank Thee for this day.
Bless all we do and all we say.
May we each enjoy Thy blessings great
As Jesus' Birth we celebrate.
And may the love that we share here
Remain throughout the coming year.
Amen!"

Christian Christmas Prayer Before Dinner

"Jesus, the Light of the World, as we celebrate your birth... may we begin to see the world in the light of understanding you give us. As you chose the lowly, the outcasts, and the poor to receive the greatest news the world had ever known, so may we worship you in meekness of heart. May we also remember our brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving. Amen."

Christmas Prayers In a Season of Grief, Sorrow or Loss

"Father, I thank you for my family and friends. I am so grateful for each and every person around this table and I thank you for the gifts of compassion, love, strength and encouragement they have been. Although it's been a painful time recently, we know that You are always with us. Your promises are true. You will never leave us nor forsake us. Thank you for the love that holds us together and for always comforting us. Thank you for the gift of your Son, whose very life reminds us that you are a father of compassion and one acquainted with grief in the midst of joy and joy in the midst of suffering. Help us to hold each other close and to treasure each other this day and all the days to come. In Jesus' name, amen."

Christmas Prayer For Hurting People

"Everlasting Father, I ask you to come to those whose hearts ache on your Son's birthday. They are hurting and lonely. Father, let them know it's okay to give you the pain and loneliness and frustration that rests in their hearts. Enable them through your grace to know you are listening -- and that you care. Come to those who grief as the Father of all comfort.

Emmanuel, I pray for those who are single and who have no family -- who spend much of the holidays alone. Be with them in the lonely hours, help them not to feel marginalized during this season that places so much emphasis on 'family'. Remind them of your open ended invitation of adoption into your eternal family. Give them the grace to allow you to enter into the lonely places of their heart. I pray for those who are housebound and infirm and are unable to leave their homes or hospital rooms due to illness. I pray for those with loved ones that are separated by work and sacrificial duty. Come to them as their beloved friend.

Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, I pray for families who struggle financially and emotionally. I pray for desperate spouses who worry over their marriage. I pray for those children who are frightened and alone and for those children who live in abusive homes. Be with the small ones who sense the worry and frustration that their parents try to hide. Bring your hope, bring your peace.

Mighty God, I pray for parents who watch helplessly as their children deal with life-threatening illnesses. Come as the the great Physician, Come as deliverer and set free those who are bound by the chains of addiction and self-destructive behavior.

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, please enter into each place, each home, each hospital room, each homeless shelter, each hotel, each jail cell, each place of business - let your children know they are not alone. Holy Spirit, please come as the Comforter and let your gentle healing warmth soothe and bring solace to their aching hearts. I pray this in the name of Jesus -- who knows our sorrows and understands our hearts."

Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow

"Eternal God, this joyful day is radiant with the brilliance of your one true light. May that light illuminate our hearts and shine in our words and deeds. May the hope, the peace, the joy, and the love represented by the birth in Bethlehem fill our lives and become part of all that we say and do. May we share the divine life of your son Jesus Christ, even as he humbled himself to share our humanity. Bless us and the feast that You have provided for us, let us be thankful for the true gift of Christmas, your Son. Amen."
