HOLIDAYS ~ HOLY DAYS



 
NEW YEARS DAY ~ THE FIRST
 
Father God,
this day marks the beginning of a brand new year. I pause to offer sincere and abundant thanksgivings for every blessing and trial of the past.
Thank You for Your Presence that has guided me.
Thank You for every answered prayer, for every “Yes” and every “No” and every “Wait.” I respond with a trusting “Amen” to Your sovereign Will.
Please grant me greater wisdom regarding the boundaries of time and purpose that You have placed upon my life.
I want to make the most of every opportunity, making decisions that will honor You and have eternal significance.
I want to love You more enthusiastically and become more faithful in my attention to our relationship. I want to know You better with each passing moment.
I want to become more faithful in my service to You for the expansion of Your Kingdom. I want to plant seeds that will cause multitudes to fall deeply in love with You.
I want to see You glorified and honored by the peoples of all nations.
I want my heart to be distanced from the things of earth, recognizing all provision as both a blessing and a tool by which I may serve You and those around me.
Happy New Year, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I look and labor hard for the day when time will not be marked as we worship without distraction in Your awesome and magnificent Presence…










EASTER
Father God,
we speak the blessing of the Resurrection throughout all the earth – over every believer who loves You and Your Word and over every individual who opposes You and Your holy Word.
Lord, please turn all hearts to The Love of the Cross and the Power of The Resurrection. We long for miracles and stand in prayer to roll away the stones that seal so many human hearts that in Your Resurrection Power You might enter in and receive all that is Your rightful due – a passionate love from those You have created.
For Your honor and glory alone,
we pray…

CHRISTMAS
 
Every day is Christmas with You, Lord. Even when life’s circumstances seek to overwhelm me, I find peace and joy within Your Presence. Evidence of Your perfect Design dances in the darkness in the form of heavenly Light.
Evidence of Your wonderful Love are manifest in a Manger, as well as the brutal suffering You endured on The Cross, demonstrating the magnitude of Your desperate Desire for us.
Forgiveness.
Freedom.
Abundant daily provision.
Although unworthy objects of Your Affections, You delight to bestow these gifts upon those who love You, and even upon those who reject You.
So what shall I give You in return?
You possess all things.
I give You my heart that beats for You alone, my soul that clings fast to You with all my strength, and my thoughts that contemplate Your Truth and Goodness at all times.
O come, let us adore You!
