Opening Prayer for Christmas Eve

In the beginning God said “let there be light”
God, we give thanks for light
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.
God, we who have had times of darkness come in search of the light.
In the beginning was the Word...and in the Word was life and light for all people.
God, we are drawn to the light of life.
And though the light shines in the darkness,
the darkness cannot overcome it.
God of star light and angel song.
As we sing and listen and watch this night, may the Light that shines from the manger fill our hearts.
And when we leave this worship space,
may that light shine through us at Christmas and all year round. Amen.
