YOU, MY CHILD (Advent 24)

LUKE 1: 76 And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, 77 to give his people the knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins, (NIV)

Zechariah knew whom his son would become, a prophet and the one to prepare the people for the coming of the promised Messiah. Can you imagine—that you might know the future of your child? In Zechariah’s case, his son was to be a servant of The Most High.

What would your child’s life be like today if you were to rear them as cherished children of God who had important tasks to perform for our Heavenly Father? Did you know—they are chosen to complete a unique job for God? They are to be the one and only them that God intended for them to be. May this season of Hope and Promise be a time when we begin to cherish our children, our grandchildren and all little ones in our midst. Like the Christ Child, let Christmas come to each child this year—the Christmas of joy and hope and salvation. Let us pray:

“True and only Father Christmas, we bow before your holy name. May this be the year when everyone comes to know you as Daddy, Abba, whom Jesus revealed you to be. We ask you for eyes to see children in need, ears to hear their cries, and tongues to teach them the real meaning of Christmas, when Love and Forgiveness came to earth. Forgive us when we place our own agenda ahead of your plan. You must cry when we let your chosen sons or daughters slip through the ages because we did not tell them they were cherished and were called to be your servants in whatever way you design. May we fulfill our calling to be a conductor on the heavenly train that will carry all your dearly beloved along on their journey for you and to you. In the name of Jesus, your son, the Holy child the wise men sought, and whom wise men still seek, we pray. Amen”
