"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
Today Lord, I want to say thank you. Thank you for the Christmas season and what it represents, the birth of your son, Jesus Christ. As we celebrate this holiday season, never allow us to forget what it is about, Jesus. Isaiah 9:6 is a reminder that you are the everlasting God. Lord God allow your eternal spirit to rule and abide in the hearts of this generation today. I pray that your love pours out and that your people know they are never alone.
Lord your word also reminds us that you are the prince of peace. I ask that you be peace in this season. Protect the hearts and minds of those who are facing loneliness in this holiday season. Many have lost loved ones and are hurt and confused. Lord, I pray that your peace will pour out and that they will feel your stillness even in the midst of sorrow. Please comfort the hurting and lost heart in this holiday season.
Lord finally, I ask that this holiday season brings reconnections. Allow us to reconnect with family and reconnect with friends. Allow hurting relationships to be mended and allow love to abound. Let our hearts also to be reconnected with you. Let this time be a time that we reflect on your goodness, your faithfulness and find joy in knowing that you sent your son for us. Let this holiday season be one of love, happiness and joy. Let your light to shine! Amen.
