The Collect for Christmas Day
Almighty God, you have given us your only-begotten Son
to take our nature upon him and as at this time
to be born of a pure virgin:
grant that we, who have been born again and made your children by adoption and grace,
may daily be renewed
by your Holy Spirit; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, now and for ever. Amen.Daily Prayer and Readings
From earliest times, Christians gathered at regular hours during each day and
night to respond to God's word with praise on behalf of creation and with intercession for the salvation of the world. By the fourth
century, if not earlier, morning and evening had emerged as the pre-eminent hours for the offering of this sacrifice of praise.
services of Morning and Evening Prayer help Christians of our own day take part in this privelige and duty which belongs to all God's
people. They may be celebrated in a very simple form, or enriched with a variety of optional chants and prayers.

of the Christian tradition from the very earliest times.
