Prayer that the Christmas star will continue to shine in our hearts

After the Christmas tree is put away, pray that the Christmas star will continue to illuminate your life.

As families conclude their celebration of Christmas and begin to put their decorations away, it doesn’t mean that the spirit of Christmas needs to be extinguished.

Christmas is much more than a season, and its beauty should permeate our lives all year round.

Here is a collect prayer from the liturgy that can be prayed to keep the star of Christmas shining in our lives past the Christmas season.

Almighty God,
the light of a new star in heaven heralded your saving love.
Let the light of your salvation dawn in our hearts
and keep them always open to your life-giving grace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
(one) God, for ever and ever.
