Pray for Families (Seeing with new eyes)

Greetings Prayer Warriors!

The Christmas Season is upon us and that conjures up images of people scurrying around, trying to find just the right present and methodically checking items off of their to-do list. Tree? Check. Decorations? Check. Cards completed and mailed? Check. Presents? Check. Prepare our hearts and mind for the birth of Christ? Oops.

Help yourself and your family by creating visual reminders. Since you will see Christmas trees everywhere, note how the needles point heavenward, pointing us to what the direction of our focus should be. The everlasting green should remind us that mankind should never lose hope in His promise. Look to the stars in the night sky as a symbol of His promise of a Savior. When you shop and see decorative gifts all over, remember that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son as the ultimate eternal gift to us. Remind yourself to give in that same spirit of generosity. Consider gifts of not just treasure but time.

Prepare our hearts and mind for the birth of Christ? Check!

Look, the heavens, even the highest heavens, belong to the LORD, your God, as well as the earth and everything on it. Deuteronomy 10:14

Pray that your family may be blessed with the joy of the anticipation.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Help share the reason for the season. Pass it on.
