Christmas Eve Prayer

Sweet Friends,

I have been away for many months and have missed being here with you. God laid a Christmas Eve prayer on my heart, and I felt led to share it here with you on this glorious eve of our Savior’s birth. I pray it blesses you.

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  –John 1:14 NIV

“Jesus, today we remember the manger. The day You left the perfection of heaven to come and live among us. You came wrapped in flesh. Fully God and fully man. Acquainted with all our sorrows. Familiar with all our ways. Knowing what would come in the end. Yet, You still came. You didn’t have to come. But You did. You dwelt with Your people 2,000 years ago, and You still live among us today. What leaves me in awe is that not only do you live among us, You live in us. Broken vessels that we are. You choose to live in us! Thank You, Jesus, for this gift of Your presence.

Open our eyes, ears, hearts and spirits to experience anew Your birth this season. May we see You in every twinkling light, every evergreen tree, every beautifully wrapped gift, and every nativity. We love you, Jesus, and pray this in Your powerful and magnificent Name.”

Christmas Blessings to you,

    A song to Jesus
    Born in a lowly manger
    Love came down to our human race
    To live a life of no pomp or wealth
    To die on a Cross He knew me well
    My Savior came that Christmas day
    And in my heart He is here to stay
    For nothing can ever take His place
    A love so pure and full of His grace.
    My wish this Christmas is for our world
    To know the Lord not just His birth.
    For in Him I ask to live this life
    That He has ordained and paid the price.
    My Messiah came to save us all
    He loved us then, He took the fall.
    He loves us now so we must live
    Gratefully content He loves us still
    That baby born so long ago walks on this earth today to show
    The Lion of Judah will never fail
    He showed us love and it will prevail!
    From my heart to our world His words I pen to say Happy birthday Jesus this Christmas day!

  8. My beautiful friend… what a gift! Thank you for this heartfelt, Spirit-led and empowered prayer. I try to grasp the enormity of our Papa’s love… to send His one and only Son. The only one born to die. I try to grasp Jesus’ love. Fully God, fully man… and He calls us friends.

    Wendy, your words have wonderfully pierced my heart, “Open our eyes, ears, hearts and spirits to experience anew Your birth this season. May we see You in every twinkling light, every evergreen tree, every beautifully wrapped gift, and every nativity.”

    This is the PERFECT gift for me to “open” as I sit having my quiet time before my family wakes up.

    And YOU… your friendship… do gifts get better than this?! Thank You Jesus! We sing, dance and praise You with all our hearts! I love you Wendy! xoxo
