Opening Prayer

Loving God, to redeem the world,
you who are almighty
chose to be born as a defenseless Infant;
you who are all-powerful
chose to become one with the poor and the lowly.
Help me to imitate your divine humility:
to empty my heart of all self-centeredness
so that it might always be a place
where you might find a worthy home.
Grant my prayer through Jesus Christ, your Son and my Redeemer. Amen.
