Santa's Prayer on
By Warren D. Jennings
The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,
But Santa still knelt by the side of the bed.
"Dear Father," he prayed "Be with me tonight.
There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.
I must jump
in my sleigh and streak through the sky,
Knowing full well that a reindeer can't fly.
I will visit each household before the first
I'll cover the world and all in one night.
With sleigh bells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,
Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.
To get in the house is the difficult part,
So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.
My sack will hold toys
to grant all their wishes.
The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.
I will fill all the stockings and not leave a
I'll eat every cookie that is left for my snack.
I can do all these things Lord, only through You,
I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.
All this is to honor the birth of the One,
That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.
So to all of my friends,
least Your glory I rob,
Please Lord, remind them who gave me this job.
A Child’s Prayer For Christmas
by B. Muntz
Dear God, thank you for Christmas and Santa Claus
And the gifts he brings me each and every year
I know I have been good according to your laws
Even though I have made my parents shed a little tear
Keep Santa safe with sled and gifts packed
Bless the reindeer they are strong and fed
Thank you for the food I left Santa to snack
Let Santa know that the cookies are beside my bed
Please stop the wars in the world and people from fighting
Let them see your peace and a Christmas tree with lighting.
Bless all the poor children without Christmas or love
Let them know that Jesus is your gift to all from above.
Bless my family that I love so very dear
Let them know that in my heart they are near
Thank you God for all the gifts shiny and new
Be sure to tell Santa that I prayed for him too.
