Dear God, two thousand years ago, you brought your son, Jesus
into this world to teach us the power of love and sacrifice. As we raise this tree, we remember his birth and the meaning of his life
for us. Bless this tree as a symbol of our celebration of Jesus' birth and our gratitude for his sacrifice. May the joy this tree brings and the gifts
we place under it remind us of the many gifts
you have given us. We ask your blessings upon our loved ones, this day and always. Amen.
