Santas Christmas Prayer

Today I was online listening to A Christmas  Worship service from December 2017 from Community Harvest Church in German Town Ohio. As part of the Worship Service I heard the reading of a Poem called  Santa’s Christmas Prayer,. Here are the words: 

Santa’s Christmas Prayer 
On Christmas Eve the other night 
I saw the most amazing sight, 

for there beneath the Christmas tree 
was Santa kneeling on his knee. 
His countenance was different than 
that all-familiar, jolly grin; 
his head was bowed, with hand to breast, 
and slightly tucked into his vest. 
For there in a nativity.
as Jesus and His family, 
and as I heard him start to pray 
I listened close to what he’d say. 
“Lord, You know that You’re the reason 
I take pleasure in this season. 
I don’t want to take Your place, 
but just reflect Your wondrous grace.
I hope you’ll help them understand 
I’m just an ordinary man, 
who found a way to do Your will 
by finding kids with needs to fill. 
But all those centuries ago, 
there was no way for me to know 
that they would make so much of me,
and all the gifts beneath the tree. 
They think I have some hidden power 
granted at the midnight hour, 

but it is my love for You 
inspiring the things I do. 
And so when they begin to open 
gifts for which they have been hoping,
may they give You all the glory, 
for You’re the One True Christmas story.”
