Thank YOU for coming into this world as a helpless baby so that you could become the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Thank you that you love me and that you love ___________.
Lord, I pray that you will bless them this holiday season. Help them to feel your love and presence as daily reminders of your humble birth surround them. Lord, may you fill them with your perfect peace and fill their hearts with matchless joy. May your arms surround them and bring them comfort and security during a busy, yet fun time of the year. Help them to know that you are always with them, not just at Christmas-time. May they grow closer to you this upcoming year and have a family that is a light in this dark world. Bless them immeasurably, both physically and spiritually.
In your Holy Name, Amen
Don’t be afraid to send a Christmas card to each person you are praying for and TELL them you are praying for them. You will be surprised at how encouraging that can be for your friends and loved ones! Prayer is powerful… and so is a word “fitly spoken.” (Proverbs 25:11)
