Christmas Prayer 2015
Posted by mark on 22 Dec 2015 . Filed under: Uncategorized
We thank You Lord that it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.
A true new beginning comes at Christmas
A new beginning in our heart
A new beginning in our life
We can begin again!
A new birth just like the new birth of The Christ Child.
Be born in our lives in a humble way,
Just as you were born on that first Christmas Day 2,000 years ago.
Just as You gave up all that You are to become like one of us,
May we give up all that we think we are in replacing
Bad for good, good for better, better for best.
Thanks be to God for Your indescribable Gift, for the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Your Word says that You sent Jesus to bless us.
We celebrate The Christmas Story;
We celebrate A Christmas Story and A Wonderful Life;
We celebrate Santa, Frosty, Rudolph,
We celebrate shepherds, wise men, angels singing on high, Joseph, and Mary;
We even celebrate Scrooge and Grinch who show us of the change
That can come over us, and cause us to overcome during this wonderful season.
We thank You and celebrate The Creator of the seasons,
The Creator of reason:
Jesus, The Reason for this and every season!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son to us on Christmas Day.”
Now for these foods before us we thank You
For the planners, the preparers, the providers and the blessing they give to us the partakers.
In The Name of Christ the Savior who was born,
