25 Days of Christmas – Day 12

I was looking for the perfect scripture for today, but just couldn’t find that “one” that felt right.  So, I turned to searching around for devotions online, etc.  Still, nothing great.  Then I thought…no one ever said that I have to post a scripture everyday!  Sometimes, there are other things that can preach to my heart just as well.

I came across this poem.  One of a couple different variations, but it spoke tons to the focus of the Christmas season.  Enjoy.

Santa’s Christmas Prayer

By Warren D. Jennings

The sleigh was packed,
the reindeer were fed,
But Santa still knelt
by the side of the bed.

“Dear Father,” he prayed
“Be with me tonight.
There’s much work to do
and my schedule is tight.

I must jump in my sleigh
and streak through the sky,
Knowing full well
that a reindeer can’t fly.

I will visit each household
before the first light,
I’ll cover the world
and all in one night.

With sleighbells a-ringing,
I’ll land on each roof,
Amid the soft clatter
of each little hoof.

To get in the house
is the difficult part,
So I’ll slide down the chimney
of each little heart.

My sack will hold toys
to grant all their wishes.
The supply will be endless
like the loaves and the fishes.

I will fill all the stockings
and not leave a track.
I’ll eat every cookie
that’s left for my snack.

I can do all these things Lord,
only through You,
I just need your blessing,
then it’s easy to do.

All this is to honor
the birth of the One,
That was sent to redeem us,
Your most Holy Son.

So to all of my friends,
lest Your glory I rob,
Please Lord, remind them,
who gave me this job.”

Be blessed!
