A Christmas Prayer: You Came

A little prayer I wrote for a gathering of friends this month. May it stir hope in your heart this Christmas.


You came.

Where we had not even looked for you, you chose to reveal yourself.

Where we thought we were furthest from you, you chose to dwell.

Upon us who lived in darkness, suddenly, a light shone.

You came.


You who calls brokenness, full; dependence, glory.

Only you write this kind of story.


Why do we ever doubt you?

You are the God who breaks in.

Who has,

And who will again.


May it be to us as You have said,

May we find our yes in your amen.
