The Long Winter – A Christmas Prayer

Lord, the winter sometimes seems to last so long. The winter outside my door, yes, and the winter in my heart. Sorrow seeks to overwhelm me. The loss I’ve faced makes me feel as though nothing will ever make me smile again. There is a coldness in my heart that I feel I can’t shake.

Let Your love bring my heart to life again. It might be painful, I know, when a frostbitten heart is warmed by the power of Your light. But I would rather a living, beating heart, even if it feels pain, than a heart of stone.
