Adorned Tree of Angels

God of all gifts, we thank you for the many ways you have blessed us this day. As a God of compassion, you know the holes that are left in our heart caused by the senseless death of a loved one. While the world celebrates around us we long for a Christmas past where we could have our loved one with us again. Only you can understand the depths of our sadness, for you experienced the death of your own Son on the Cross to save our souls. Lord, for all of us who suffer through tragedy, we pray that you heal us of the loss of our loved one who departed, and dry the tears of sorrow that weighs down our hearts.

May your hand impart peace and healing to the downtrodden and bring justice to a land who needs Your counsel and guidance. We ask for Your special dispensation for families victimized by heinous crimes and for Your wisdom to reign in the courtrooms- but most of all, we want in this season for Your will and way to penetrate the hearts of the unbelieving who can never have the inner peace they long for until You enter their hearts.

From the Unit 1012 to your family, may God bless and protect this Christmas season and open up more doors for legal and social justice to prevail. Amen

            We will present this song by Amy Grant:

"Christmas Lullaby (I Will Lead You Home)"

Are you far away from home
This dark and lonely night
Tell me what best would help
To ease your mind
Someone to give
Direction for this unfamiliar road
Or one who says, "Follow me and
I will lead you home."

How beautiful
How precious
The Savior of old
To love so
The loneliest soul
how gently
how tenderly
He says to one and all,
"Child you can follow Me
And I will lead you home
Trust Me and follow Me
And I will lead you home."

Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray
Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven
To live with Thee there
Take us to Heaven
To live with Thee there
