Prayer for Christmas Week

Dear Lord,
As this day dawns my thoughts turn to the anticipation of the first night. The angels are primed and ready to announce the birth of the Savior. Mary’s heart is dancing with as the contractions get stronger. Joseph must have been nervous yet excited that he would soon be a father, but not just any father the father of the savior of the nations. This is the day the Father in Heaven had been planning since paradise was lost in the garden. Lord help me to stop all the noise of the season and rightly focus my heart and mind on the birth of Jesus.

“11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:11-14

Help me, Lord, to close the doors of hate and open the doors of love all over the world. You have delivered me from evil, by the blessing that the Christ child brings may this Christmas time give me peace, and a grateful heart because I am forgiven help me share that forgiveness with others.

In the name Jesus, Amen.

  1. I was thinking in church today to remember why we honor this day. But more importantly to respect and love and honor people whatever their social or economic strata. Each step can start with us.
