3 Important Prayers for Christmas (Praise Your Way Day 25)

Today’s Reading

For unto us a Child is born,

Unto us a Son is given;

And the government will be upon His shoulder.

And His name will be called

Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6

 


Reflection

Let me start by saying, Happy Christmas.

I know. There are many people who think we shouldn’t celebrate Christmas. They always give their reasons. But looking beyond these reasons, we know that Jesus Christ was born on this earth, He lived, died and resurrected on the third day.

If Christmas reminds us of Christ in any way and helps us fathom the depth of God’s love for us, then it’s worth it.

So we celebrate Christmas because of the opportunity it gives us to remember the wisdom of God’s love for man.

My prayer for you today is that this Christmas will be very special for you and your family. May it offer you the opportunity to come together at the table of love and appreciate God’s blessings in your lives. May it bring restoration, peace, reconciliation, and breakthrough for every member of your family, in Jesus name.

Today, I want to share with you a few prayers for the blessings that Christmas provides as we also continue our month of praise.


Adoration

Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind. How great is Your Love that You made manifest in Christ to reconcile us to Yourself.  What would we have done if Christ had not come to bring us to You!

Indeed, Your mercy and LOVE are beyond human comprehension. I join the hosts of heaven and say, thank You LORD. May Your name be worshiped and glorified forever and ever.

I thank You for Your love for humanity. Thank You for the gift of Your Son who came for the Salvation of humankind.

I acknowledge that I would be lost if not for Jesus Christ who came on earth and loved so much as to die for our sins and restore us to You. For this I say, thank You Lord.

The birth of Jesus Christ brought us transformation from living in darkness into a glorious light. I am no longer walking in darkness. For this, I say, thank You Lord.

Lord Jesus Christ, I thank You for coming into my life to effect a change when darkness had full control, your blazing spiritual light swung in and joy burst forth in my heart till now.

 In Jesus name.


Confession

O LORD, I come before You this day, for myself, for my family and for my country. I confess that we have missed the essence of celebrating Christmas. We have turned this season into a season of immorality, drunkenness and gluttony. We have taken away the Message from the season and turned it into satanic claptrap.

LORD, I ask for forgiveness for myself, my family and my country. Let Your mercy prevail over us. Do not look over us based on our sins and foolishness.

LORD Jesus, as we celebrate this season, help me to come closer to YOU more and more, every day, both now and forever, in Jesus name.

Open the eyes of all members of my family to draw closer to YOU day by day, and lead them into personal relationship and encounter with the Holy Spirit.

LORD JESUS, may our lives bring You only Glory, this season, in Jesus name.


Supplication

Father in Heaven, the day of joy returns and crowns another year with peace and favour. Help us rightly to remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the songs of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the wise men.

O LORD, Close the doors of hate and open the doors of love all over the world. Cause the message of Christ’s birth to bring salvation in the hearts of men, across the World. Let this season come with an unquestionable revelation of YOUR love in my heart and the hearts of all the members of my family, in Jesus name.

May every plan of the devil for my family, my neighbourhood and my country during this season, be destroyed, in Jesus name.

Deliver us from evil, by the blessing that Christ brings, and teach us to celebrate and be merry with reverence to YOUR name.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be saved and be thy children, And the Christmas evening brings us to our bed with grateful thoughts, forgiving and being forgiven, for Jesus sake, in Jesus name.
