Christmas Eve Prayer

Father God, I love You and adore You! I thank You for a time of family coming together and ask that you bring Sarah safely home in the morning. I thank You for making all of this work out. I think of how happy I am to have my children under my roof tomorrow and I cannot imagine how You feel when You see how full the churches are on Christmas Eve. I thank You for our wonderful Christmas Eve service! God, I pray for those who do not have you as their Lord and Savior. I pray for those who will attend a church service, that do not believe, that their hearts will be stirred and they will want to come home to You.


I think of young Mary and Joseph traveling and going into a cave that was used for animals. Mary did not have the "What To Expect When You're Expecting" book. She had no lamaze classes. In candlelight in a cave, she laid her newborn baby on straw in a trough. I think about a piece of You, Your Son, sent from heaven in this humble setting. The hardships fill me with wonder. That night would be remembered forever. It was the night that changed everything. I am still in wonder at Your perfect plans. Of course, Jesus would come into the world humbly - He is so approachable. We are Your children. I continue to be amazed at your unfailing love, and your amazing grace.


In a season when many are happy and light, many are struggling with the heaviness of life and the loss of loved ones. Burdens have stole their joy. They need your peace, Jesus. The peace that transcends all understanding and only comes from You! I pray this for them.


Thank You for sending your Son and the gift of Salvation. Thank You for the hope you bestow and the peace you bring. Thank You for the love and blessings you pour on us and the joy You give. I praise You! In Jesus' precious and holy name I pray. Amen


Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
