Christmas Eve Year A

Collect One

O God,
who makest us glad with the yearly remembrance
of the birth of thy only Son Jesus Christ;
Grant that, as we joyfully receive him for our Redeemer,
so we may with sure confidence,
behold him when he shall come to be our Judge,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end.

Collect Two

Almighty God,
you make us glad with the yearly remembrance
of the birth of your Son Jesus Christ:
Grant that, as we joyfully receive him as our redeemer,
we may with sure confidence behold him
when he shall come to be our judge;
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer

God for whom we wait,
you feed us with the bread of eternal life:
Keep us ever watchful, that we may be ready
to stand before the Son of Man, Jesus Christ our Lord.
