A Christmas Prayer


We thank you for this place in which we dwell,

for the love that unites us,

for the peace accorded us this day,

for the hope with which we expect the morrow,

for the work, the health , the food

and bright skies which make our lives

delightful for our friends in all parts of the earth.


Robert Louis Stevenson
