Prayer: Father, Your servant Zachariah foretold the coming of Your Son, to lead all people out of darkness into eternal light. As we celebrate the anniversary of His birth, we pray that we may continue to carry that light into the darkness of the world, where we live. You have given us the gift of faith in Your Son Jesus, and through that gift, we are given the light to guide us in the way we should walk, the way we should live, and the way we should love. Pour out Your Spirit upon us; send Your Spirit into all the world, that all people will know and love You and serve You in the teachings of Jesus, Your Son. Amen.

The prayer is taken from Fr. Killian Speckner OFMConv., THE PRAYERS OF FATHER KILLIAN – A Franciscan Missionary’s Guide to Daily Devotion, Paraclete Press, 1986.
