"There has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
I love the Christmas season. I love reflecting on the birth of Christ, the beauty of it, the heartache of it, the promise of his birth. Where would we be without the birth of Christ? No Messiah, no Savior, no hope, no life eternal.
This year, we chose to do things a little differently. We placed a tree in our entryway, not large by any means, and have begun decorating it with prayer cards. All it took was posting it on Facebook, and the prayer requests have been flowing in. I love it. Rather than ornaments, we have prayers, could there be anything more beautiful? I think not. Each night, as a family, we remove some cards from the tree and pray specifically for each request. Let me just say, we are all excited about this new tradition in our home.
You know what is great? When our little girl prays she starts with "Thank you God that.." and then goes on to insert the prayer request. She knows He is sure to answer, and her prayers reflect that. Oh to be like a child! It is endearing and wonderful and a reminder of how we are to pray. We are not to doubt that God will answer, He will, He has, He always does. Pray with confidence, pray specifically, simply pray.
If you have a request you would like us to add to our prayer tree, please let me know either in the comments section or via email. We would love to add you to our tree, and there is plenty of room for more! Be blessed, and may your hearts and minds be set on Christ.
