Prayer For Today, December, 22, 2014
Most precious Jesus, in the midst of all the trappings of Christmas, in the attraction of sales and shopping, we somehow miss the excitement and the wonder of you. First of all, you have given to us all of the beauty of nature and the lovely skies that warm our days and brilliantly light up our nights. As far as sales go, you give to us our redemption and our salvation, free. You have sought us and bought us and paid the debt for our sins. Jesus, I thank you with all of my heart and for giving us Christmas. Bless all of our dear children, I pray. Amen.
