My GIft To You

 What is the one thing we all want for Christmas?
You can’t get it online or at a crowded mall.
You can only find it by following a star to a lowly manger and, there, falling on your knees before the One who alone offers
that elusive gift we so desperately seek.
Peace in the form of a baby. God incarnate inhabiting a body of flesh and bone and blood. A body that would one day be broken for us.
Isaiah prophesied about it in chapter 53, verse 5:
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
 Below you will find a simple prayer.This, a prayer for peace, along with a stunning a cappella version of O Holy Night performed by Martina McBride is my gift to you.

Dear Lord, 
I pray for the person who may have stumbled onto this page seemingly by accident. But since I don’t believe in accidents, I know you have a plan to bring much needed peace to them in this moment. I pray that a holy hush would settle their spirit and bring calm to the chaos and that, today and always, they would experience the deep, abiding peace that only comes from you.
In Jesus name, the Prince of Peace, we pray. Amen!



May you and your loved ones enjoy a peaceful and blessed Christmas!
