A Prayer for This Christmas

Father above,

As I sit this morning, coffee in hand, to catch up on the news of the world, all my mind can think is how badly we need to cry out to You.  Our world is lost and crumbling without You. Forgive us in this Season of Holiness.  Forgive us for our lack of holiness.  Forgive us for abandoning You.

Break our hearts for You, Father.

I close my eyes and see Your perfect love…

So very far from home
You gave up Your throne in glory
For a humble bed of hay
You put Yourself in the care
Of simple mortal men
To allow Yourself to learn and grow
To fully understand
How broken and in need of You
Our world truly is
You taught us faith and showed us love
As You walked upon this land
You endured our pain and took our place
While shamed upon that cross

Father, give us each Your eyes to see through during this Christmas season.  Let us not see with the hate of the world, but with Your unconditional love for all of mankind.  Give us Your wisdom and desire to pray.  Pray like we’ve never prayed before.  Prayers for a lost world to come to You.  Prayers for wisdom to show Your love to those who need to see & experience You.

Help us focus on You!  Rejoice in You, for You are worthy of so much more than we can give!  Remind us to praise You on Christmas morning for Your greatest gift and abundant blessings!

Amen

If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Merry Christmas & Be Blessed
