Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday, Jesus!
Allow me to share my prayer for this Christmas Day 2014.
My gracious Heavenly Father, I am so very grateful for the blessings and provision this past year. Thank you, God, for giving your one and only Son to come into this world to redeem me, forgive me and save me from all my sin. Thank you God, for the humble obedience of Mary and Joseph. Thank you Lord, for choosing the lowly shepherds to be the first to receive the announcement of Jesus’ birth. Thank you God, that I can freely worship your Son, Jesus, Mighty God, King of Kings, Prince of Peace, Emmanuel. May you be glorified in my life today, tomorrow, and forever. In Jesus’ Holy name, Amen.
Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
