Prayer by Lili Amirhosseini ’18
The Christmas season is my favorite time of year. Not only is it a time of family, faith, and extravagant decorations, it also is the time of my favorite genre: Christmas music. One of my favorite Christmas songs of all time is Last Christmas by Wham!. If you haven’t heard it, the person singing is reminiscing that last year for Christmas, he gave someone his heart and the next day they gave it away. This year, he wants to give it to someone that he can trust and who will be careful with his heart. Even though it is just a Christmas song, this is actually a pretty relatable concept. Sometimes, it takes a while to find people we can trust, and we might get hurt along the way as we try to find a person to lean on. Once we find those people, though, it feels as though you can breathe easier.
During the hardest times in my life, I kept a diary and wrote down my feelings. At the time, I thought writing in a diary was my only refuge because I thought I didn’t have anyone to talk to. I didn’t realize that I was in fact talking to God. He is always there for us and is always making sure that we are following the path that He has laid out for us.
Let us pray.
Thank you for always looking out for us. Please help us to remember to always place our trust in you, especially when we feel as if we have no one else to turn to. Help us to celebrate the birth of your son, Jesus Christ during this Christmas season. In your name we pray,
Amen. Mary Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
