A Prayer for You Today (1)

November 28, 2022

(You) keep Christmas in your own way

and let me keep it in mine.

Ebenezer Scrooge – A Christmas Carol.



But when the set time had fully come, 

God sent his Son, born of a woman…

Galatians 4:4

It is a mercy from God to be a part of another Christmas season. I suspect every tenderhearted Christian wants to keep it in ways that please God.


We have so many liberties in our own Christmas traditions and celebrations. Excellent! Enjoy them!


Therefore, the following prayer is simple. We ask God for grace during the uniqueness of this season to keep Christmas in a Christ-centered and people-welcoming way.


Father, in this holy season of word, prayer, song, and laughter, we praise you for the great wonders you have sent us: for shining star and angel's song, for the infant's cry in a lowly manger. We praise you for the Word made flesh in a little Child. We behold His glory and are bathed in its radiance.

Be with us as we sing the ironies of Christmas, the incomprehensible comprehended, the poetry made hard fact, the helpless Babe who cracks the world asunder. We kneel before you with the shepherds, innkeepers, and wise men. Help us to rise deeper than we are.

And may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, (this Christmas season), and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen


A joined prayer from an unknown author and Hebrews: 13:20,21



God bless you richly this Christmas season.
