A Prayer For Celebrating Christmas Day

Christmas prayers offer a beautiful way to reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ and the many blessings we have. There is no doubt this year has been a difficult one for all of us. As we remember the love of God and the gift of Jesus this holiday season, we are able to focus on the hope and joy that we have despite the circumstances that may be surrounding us. 

Dear Lord, don’t let us miss You this Christmas season. Help us to simplify our activities and traditions so we can focus our celebration on Your birth. Thank You for being the Prince of Peace, and we ask You for that supernatural peace to reign in our hearts. Thank You for the simple but life-changing message of Your love for us.

We thank You for coming to earth so You could redeem us. When we think of the extent to which You were willing to go in order to save us, it makes us want to shout, to celebrate, and to cry with thankfulness. You love us so much, and we are so grateful for that love. Without You, we would still be lost and in sin. But because of everything You have done for us, today we are free; our lives are blessed; Jesus is our Lord; Heaven is our home; and Satan has no right to control us. We will always be eternally thankful to You for everything You did to save us! 

We pray this in Jesus’ precious name!  Amen.
