Jesus, thank You for the opportunity to celebrate Your birth. Remind us that today is about You and what You have done. Jesus, Thank You for Your Incarnation. May we NEVER forget that for the first time in human history, when You were born was sinful man able to see God’s face and live. Thank You Jesus for coming and dwelling among us. May we give You the praise, glory, honor that is Yours, not just today but everyday.
Jesus, thank You that Your birth is the beginning of man’s reconciliation with God. Jesus, You are the Light of the World, may we never forget this Truth. May we be the light that You have called Your people to be, pointing others to You.
Triune God, thank You for the gift of salvation. Lord, for those who are hurting today, I ask that You will give them comfort. For those who are stressed by the consumerism and commercialism of this day, may they rest in knowing who You are. Lord, in all things may we be reminded that the baby in the manger, grew up, went to the cross and suffered and died for us and three days later rose from the grave defeating death, pain, sickness. Lord, this Christmas may we be reminded that Jesus’s presence is our greatest Christmas present. In Jesus’s Name I pray, Amen.
