Prayer Ministry

From The Prayer Corner - A Christmas Prayer of Peace  

Dear Lord, please don't let us miss You and Your peace this Christmas season. Help us to simplify our activities and traditions so we can focus our celebration on Your birth. Thank You for being the Prince of Peace, and we ask You for that supernatural peace of Yours to reign in our hearts.

 

Jesus, You are the Light of the World.  As we celebrate Your birth, may we begin to see the world in the light of understanding You give us. As You chose the lowly, the outcasts, and the poor to receive the greatest news the world had ever known, so may we worship You in humbleness of heart. May we also remember our brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving.  We thank You for the simple but life-changing message of Your love for us.  Help us share that love with others.

 

Your name is still called "Wonderful Counselor," "The Mighty God," "The Everlasting Father," and "The Prince of Peace." As Your children, we cry out for a fresh filling, and a new awareness of Who You are. We choose by faith to make the "good news of great joy" a reality in our own lives, so others can see us as lighted trees of life, pointing to You this Christmas. We know one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that You are Lord. And we also know that peace on earth can only come when hearts find peace with You.

 

Lord we pray this Christmas season - may we be filled with the wonder of Mary, the obedience of Joseph, the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the determination of the magi, and most especially the peace of the Christ child.  “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, good will to men.”  Luke 12:14        In Jesus' Name, Amen.
