Christmas Prayer by Nina Dove, age 9

Candlelight guides the way

To Jesus in the hay.

Angels sing.

Gifts we bring

To Jesus our newborn King.

Away in a manger—

Here in a manger—

Make our hearts your manger—

Be born in us today.


Nina Dove, age 9, can't wait to visit her Great Grandmother, "Cha-cha," for Christmas.
