Prayer Day 24
“We come to you today in thankful spirits as the reason of the season is you. We thank you for the baby born in the manger, the young virgin’s trust knowing that she was carrying the Savior even though nobody took it for what it was. Thank you for the 3 wise men who took it upon themselves to go the distance to see the life changing moments taking place. Lord, we know you could’ve made this event spectacular and over the top- but you didn’t. You could’ve planned this anyway you wanted and you chose to have the scene in the simplest way showing us that we don’t have to have everything over the top or spectacular. Sometimes, the most simple settings and events are the best.
When we get out of line and start bragging about everything we have help us remember a simple verse from James, “God is against the proud, but he is kind to the humble. ( James 4:6b)” Everything we have is because of you, Father, not us. We ask for forgiveness for the times we’ve been too proud instead of humble. We pray to always be proud of you and the thing you do through us. Help us not to take it out of context and take all the credit. You, Lord, are the reason for the season and the only reason to be both, proud and humble. Thank you for all you’ve done in 2016 and will continue to do in 2017 and beyond”
In you precious name, Amen.
