Advent Prayer

Weekly prayer of November 28, 2004.

At The Way Ministries…John 14:6 everything is done in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ let us pray for an open and receptive heart to Jesus’ purpose on the earth.

Our Father and our God in heaven. Hallowed be Your name. We thank You LORD for this week and for life’s challenges and blessings. We especially thank You for each day that You have made for us to rejoice and be glad in.

We rejoice for You are the Creator of heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1) and according to Your word everything You made was very good (Genesis 1:31 ). At the same time we regret for the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). This was evident in Satan’s contact with Adam and Eve. Yet we can still be glad today, for although the wages of sin is death, the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen (Romans 6:23 ).

Therefore as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Your Son Jesus Christ, enable us O LORD to be open and to be receptive to His reason for coming. Help us to understand that whereas the thief came to steal, and to kill and to destroy, Jesus came that you and I may have life and that we may have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Also, please remind us when we have tribulation to be of good cheer for Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33 ).

When we see others in need enable us to be loving and compassionate towards them like Your son Jesus was towards the world. We offer this prayer in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

To our visitors: Let this prayer be yours as you receive it and personally offer it to God, Amen. If you have comments or prayer requests please use this link to (Email Us).

Blessings.
