Members of the St Chrysostom’s ministry team have written short reflections for the twelve days of Christmas. We’ll post one each day. Today, Christmas Day, we begin:
Probably the carol loved most by children is Away in a Manger it is sung in schools at Christmas events, we hear it at church, and we hear it when we are out and about at Christmas. Many people know the words by heart.
The words of carols can often be our prayers. Today, Christmas Day, have a quiet moment for peace and reflection and why not pray, with children around the world:
Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay
close by me for ever, and love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
and fit us for heaven to live with thee there.
