Today’s Prayer

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)

Dear heavenly Father, Christmas is coming.  Christmas – the time when the Word became flesh and lived among us.  Open my eyes to see your glory, your goodness, and your joy among us.  Yes, Father, this world is full of a continuous bombardment to take our eyes off you, but just send your Holy Spirit so that we may be drawn back to keep our focus on Jesus.  Help us to prepare our hearts for the very best gifts of all – grace and truth from your Son, Jesus.  Come, Jesus, come. Amen.
