Prayer to Put Jesus First
Dear God, help us to keep our focus first on Christ this season. Please forgive us for giving too much time and attention on other things. Help us to reflect again, on what Christmas is really all about. Thank you that you came to give new life, peace, hope, and joy. Thank you that your power is made perfect in our weakness. Help us to remember that the gift of Christ, Immanuel, is our greatest treasure, not just at Christmas, but for the whole year through. Fill us with your joy and the peace of your Spirit. Direct our hearts and minds towards you. Thank you for your reminder that both in seasons of celebration and in seasons of brokenness, you’re still with us. For you never leave us.
Thank you for your daily powerful Presence in our lives, that we can be assured your heart is towards us, your eyes are over us, and your ears are open to our prayers. Thank you that you surround us with favor as a shield, and we are safe in your care. We choose to press in close to you today and keep you first in our hearts and lives. In Jesus Name, Amen. -
Sister’s December is here and we’re coming to the close of another year, 2020.
This prayer says it all, “For such a time as this.” I pray that you have a blessed and prosperous holiday with your family. Don’t forget about your sisters and brothers that are less fortunate than you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
