My Father in Heaven,
I thank You for this day, another day of life, another day of worship, another day of love. You have graciously given me Your forgiveness, compassion, provision, and love.
Father, I will worship You all the days of my life.
I thank You for this Christmas holiday, a time set aside so I can celebrate the first coming of Jesus. This is a time when I can pause from my busy schedule and remember that You are the God who keeps His promises. You promised 4000 years ago to send a Savior and a Messiah, and 2000 years ago You did.
Father, may I always trust You to keep Your promises.
I ask that during this Christmas season that You will remind me of the great love You have for me, the love that is seen in the precious gift of Your son Jesus. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit to transform my life and empower me to live a life that reflects Your love into this world.
Father, make this Christmas a joyful, hopeful, and loving time of the year.
It is in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
