Looking at Christmas Lights

❄️Nothing cuts through the bleakness of winter quite like Christmas lights. There’s something about seeing them, reflecting across a dark road, over freshly fallen slow, that creates a beauty unique to this time of year. They are fleeting and flickering nudges, calling attention to the true Light—our reason for hope in an otherwise dark world.

🎄As the lights continue to go up in your city this year, let this prayer serve as a reminder of God, made man and Jesus coming to us in the most ordinary of circumstances. You might even get to use it again in February (or March), if your neighbor’s lights get left up a little too long ;].

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5).

A Prayer for Seeing Christmas Lights

Joy of the World, our streets glimmer with reminders of your Incarnation– a celebration of your arrival. The dancing lights break the winter’s darkness, leaving whispers of your hope. May each home overflow with the warmth of your love. As I notice the lights of the Christmas season, may you use me to reveal your light to the world. Amen.


The role of prayer in Christian life is powerful and helps us in our mission to creatively explore how we connect with God in the ordinary, extraordinary, everyday moments of life. For more everyday prayers, visit this page!
