Prayer: Almighty God, we thank you for the angels that you have sent down to us. Whether we realize or not; we are surrounded by them day to day. They are our coworkers who help us with projects, they are the grocery store clerks who help us carry our groceries, they are our church families who bring food to us when we are ill, and they are our loved ones who know how to make us smile in times of despair. From them we feel your love and are given hope that there can be peace on this Earth. Let us show kindness to those you send to help us and let us not forget the love you have for each and every one of us. Amen.
Question: Like the Shepherds we are scared by happenings we do not understand; how can we stay strong and have faith in God’s ways?
