She will have a son, and you will name him Jesus—because he will save his people from their sins - Matthew 1:21

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 Anita Cochran:

Someone Is Missing At Christmas lyrics
Someone is missing at Christmas
Someone I loved all my life
Someone I played with and laughed all night long
Someone I think of when I hear that song

Someone is missing at Christmas
Someone has left me alone
Someone so close even though we’re apart
Someone who’d finished the sentence I’d start

Someone whose love is my favorite gift
Someone whose presence is my Christmas wish
Someone who always was here
Someone is missing this year

Candlelit snapshots of Christmases gone by
You in your favorite chair
Memories like snowflakes melt in my eyes
I look and you’re not sitting there

Someone whose love is my favorite gift
Someone whose presence is my Christmas wish
Someone is missing at Christmas
Wait… someone is touching my heart…

Someone has heard me and answered my call
Someone I love is not missing at all
Someone is with me at Christmas
Someone’s right here in my heart
Someone I love is with me this Christmas
And will be each Christmas to come!
