Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. Luke 2:11
Merry Christmas to you and yours! May your heart swell from gratitude to the Lord for the birth of the Savior who was born to us. May the peace that the Messiah came to bring rest with you today as you treasure His gift.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for giving us Your Son. Thank you for fulfilling the promises that You made to redeem us from our sins. Today I pray that our hearts may be steadfast and filled with joy; filled with gratitude and filled with humility. You have given Your One and Only Son for us, though we were undeserving. Lord, help us to truly accept the gift that You sent us in Jesus Christ. Help us to be content in Him and help us to grow in His image.
I thank you that on the first Christmas day Your beautiful gift entered our broken world. I thank you for Your good and perfect plan for mankind, for me.
Today, help us to pause and rest in the assurance of Your love and of Your peace. Help us to pause and say “Thank you” for the eternal gift of Jesus Christ.
It is in His Name that I pray,
