The Legend of the Christmas Prayer is that rare book that's destined to be a classic. In it, author Brian Morgan touches the hearts of readers through a folk tale in which a man learns the true meaning of Christmas.
Once upon a Christmas, a man who had a big heart, but little money, dreamt he could give his friends endless riches. He began to think that perhaps real wealth could not be measured in money, so, taking out his quill, he began to write blessings on a parchment scroll.
The humble writer's prayer was eventually lost in time, but, through the years, his Christmas Prayer began to appear all over the world--obscure villages, big cities, and the homes of families where Christmas is treasured.
Readers who discover this stirring legend will find prayers for each of the twelve days before Christmas, girded with beloved passages of appropriate Scripture.
