Twelfth Day of Christmas
We praise you because your fullness
was pleased to dwell in Jesus Christ.
We praise you because you dwell as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in your Church.
Help us as your Church to live out your
presence in us in the same ways that
Jesus lived out your presence in him.
Help us to grow
toward complete dedication to doing your will,
toward forgiveness that knows no bounds,
toward love that’s willing to make any sacrifice,
toward hope that has no room for despair,
toward faith that gives no place to fear, and
toward peace that holds steady in the midst of chaos.
