Emmanuel, God with us, as this day begins, as well, the hustle and bustle begins. I ask that You center our prayers, first, in gratitude for the gift of Your Son, Jesus. You loved us so much that You sent Your only Son to testify to this truth . . .
Today I pray for those who long for the good news of Your love and grace. I pray for the lonely and the lost. Thank You for sending Your precious beloved Son, so that all might know Your hope for Creation. This is the true meaning of Christmas!
Your love has come down from heaven to dwell with us. Bless us with this truth in our hearts today. Embrace us all this day. All honor, praise, and glory to You Abba God. In the name of the Christ-child I pray, amen . . .
