Opening Prayer: Almighty God, thank you for this season. Help me to focus on You and Your Son, and not about the gifts and parties that take so much time during this season. Amen.

Read: Matthew 1:18-25
Reflect: Does Joseph’s response seem appropriate to you? What did Joseph believe about Mary’s pregnancy prior to this vision coming? How did the vision change Joseph’s perspective on Mary’s pregnancy? What does this story teach us about Jesus?

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.

Hymn: “Child in the Manger
Child in the manger,
Infant of Mary,
Outcast and Stranger,
Lord of all,
Child who inherits
All our transgressions-
All our demerits
On Him fall

Once the most holy
Child of salvation
Gently and lowly
Lived below.
Now as our glorious
Mighty Redeemer,
See Him victorious
O’er each foe.

Prophets foretold Him-
Infant of wonder;
Angels below Him
On His throne.
Worthy Savior
Of all our praises;
Happy forever
Are His own.

Closing Prayer: I come and adore the newborn King. Thank Your, Lord for the best, and most important gift of the season. Amen.
