Lord, we remember the cashiers who process countless transactions with a smile, often dealing with the stresses of both customers and the holiday rush. Bless them with patience and grace, and may they find joy in their service. As we embark on this shopping season, help us keep our hearts focused on the true meaning of Christmas, which is the celebration of your gift to us, your Son, Jesus Christ. Remind us that while gift-giving is a wonderful tradition, love, kindness, and compassion are the most precious gifts we can share. Grant us the serenity to manage our time wisely, the patience to stand in long lines, and the understanding to treat others with kindness during this season of joy. Let this season be an opportunity to share your love and bring peace to our hearts and to those around us. In your name, we pray. Amen.
