Many around the world are waiting for Santa Claus this evening. Others are waiting to celebrate a birthday, the birth of the Son of God, Jesus the Christ! He who was anticipated for hundreds of years before his birth, is celebrated thousands of years after his coming. Nothing more needs to be said. Your Savior has come and is waiting to be born anew in your heart this very night, this new Christmas Day. There is no gift more glorious than that. There is no jewel more precious, no Christmas lights more bright, no candles more warm than one ones on the top of the birthday cake of our king. “Oh Holy night, the stars are brightly shinning. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth.” Let us pray:
“Oh dear God in Heaven, the sound of your name calms the storm and drives out the demons of our lives. May your son, Jesus, be born in our hearts this evening, that Christmas may be Christ’s day every day. We thank you for every gift you have given us, for the GOLD of dear friends and family, for the FRANKENSENCE of warm turkey roasting in the oven and pies cooling on the rack, and the MYRRH of Mamma’s starched apron and the sweet aroma of sawdust coming from Daddy’s workshop. We are rich beyond anything known to man with all the blessings of life and love you have given and are giving us. You told us from of old to “fear not.” This new Christmas we choose to trust you, oh Father, for you are worthy of our trust. Forgive us for the many times we have tried to live life on our own without your guidance and help. Forgive us when we have been negative about the life you have given us. We thank you for every gift, those that prune and those stretch us beyond any limitations we have placed on ourselves. We pray that the New Year will permit us to be a blessing to someone else, that we may see beyond ourselves and bring comfort to others. For those who have been ill, we pray for health. For those who have been sad or angry, we pray for mended hearts and souls. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen”
A Very Merry and Blessed Christmas to you all,
