                                 PRAYER

  Reverend Erin Keys, Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church, Washington, 
D.C., offered the following prayer:
  Loving God, this holiday season, we pray that the abundance of Your 
blessings would be known by all, both our neighbors near and far. We 
pray for peace. We pray for joy. We pray for hope. We pray that the 
spirit of generosity, forgiveness, and kindness that fills us this time 
of year might remain with us always, and that we would extend to all 
people the grace we would hope to receive. As we look ahead to a new 
year that waits on the horizon, God, may we greet it with enthusiasm 
and a sense of purpose for Your work in our world.
  Amen.
