A Christingle holding prayer
Lord Jesus, I stretch out my hands and receive this gift, and hold tight because it is mine.
Light, fruit, sweets, colour, but so much precious than this.
I hold in my hands a picture of your love.
I imagine all the other special things I might hold.
Lord Jesus, help me to remember those with little or nothing to hold, especially other children who don't have enough to eat or a safe place to live.
Today, as I hold my Christingle and remember you, I pray that you would make me someone, like you, who will reach out my opened hands to give and love like you do.
