Help me to enter into the real experience of this special time, to let go of needless anxiety and stress To feel peace and healing enter my tired spirit .
With this Candle I pray this Christmas
For Peace in my family
For children and young adults in broken families
For couples going through the pain of separation
For those who dread Christmas, because they have lost a loved one
For those who are more lonely at Christmas
For families who are fearful of violence because a father or mother drinks too much
For those who are losing faith and hope
For those who have to spend Christmas in hospital
For those who suffer from depression
For those worried about their children, about
binge-drinking, drugs or violence on the streets
For those who cannot come home for Christmas
For those who find it difficult to come home to God, to faith and to the church.
