Advent prayer for children of same-gender loving parents


Monday, December 8, 2014


God, in this season of nativity
I pray for all children,
but especially for the ones
with two dads like Jesus,
the ones with two moms like Jesus,

that they may recognize
with a sudden smile
and a star
in their eyes,
how all the sweet details
of the Bethlehem story —
angel promise
to social challenge,
extravagant gifts,
trusted guidance from exile —

intersect with things
their parents ponder in their hearts.
