25 Christmas Prayers – Day 2

Today is the second in a series of daily Christmas blogs: 25 Christmas Prayers, celebrating the names of our precious Lord. I hope they will enrich your Christmas season and draw you closer to the One who is the true reason for Christmas.http://www.rebeccabarlowjordan.com/25-christmas-prayers-day-2

Day 2 – Mighty God

Lord, You were born in a humble stable as God incarnate, yet Isaiah prophesied Your name as Mighty God.

Mighty God! As warrior and victor of all our battles, You lead; You guide; You fight for those you love. And You always win. Is anything too hard for You, Lord?

Most of our battles are of our own making. You have already conquered them, Lord, with Your death and resurrection. And those skirmishes that still test us have no power to destroy us–for we are kept by Your mighty hand.

This Christmas, Enlarge Our Faith

Lord, this Christmas, enlarge our faith to believe in Your power and might. Teach us to believe in the impossible. For with You, all things are truly possible. Strengthen us for our journey into the next year. Keep us safe with Your mighty hand.

The familiar childhood song still echoes from the past: “We are weak, but You are strong!” We cannot make it on our own. We depend on You, Mighty God. And we desire to know and to feel Your power flowing through us.

Christmas Thanks to You, Lord

Thank You for giving us difficult tasks, so You can be glorified in our weakness. Thank You for giving us the strength to accomplish what You ask by trusting You one day at a time. Your timing is perfect, for at the moment we need it, You push us beyond our limits into the realm of spiritual and physical possibilities!

Lord, we acknowledge Your miraculous, divine power. And we prepare our hearts to believe. What a Mighty God we serve!

For to us a son is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God…. Isaiah 9:6 NIV

      (I would like to share a story of an answered prayer and who it was for.
      When my friend Steven Chishlom’s wife Ireen was not well I prayed for her and Steven told me… “Jason, your prayer was answered.”
      I could not believe it at first, but He explained to me, “Jason God Is with “.

      As I read your message for today, some descriptive words stood out….strong, mighty, victor, battles, fight, conquer, power. For me, these words can be bothersome as I came from a family of abuse. Yet, the other day I read a devotion as to how Christmas can be a paradox. I asked myself the question, “How do these words fit into the message of Christ and Christmas?” Perhaps the question was answered by something that happened with my six year old grandson.
      Yesterday, my grandson got off the school bus at my son’s place of business. I had ordered a gift for my two year old granddaughter to be delivered at the business, and it had arrived that morning. When my grandson saw it, he started to cry because her present from me came first. My son called me and asked me to talk to him but he refused. My reaction was sadness, at first. Then I felt angry but kept it to myself. I felt like returning the gift and his gift too!!
      My grandkid’s parent’s recently divorced and the kids are still pretty sensitive. One time my grandson told my other son that his Mom yells much more than his Dad does. I presume there is some verbal violence in my grandkid’s lives. More than anything, I wanted to use this experience as a learning experience for my grandson and myself. If I could get my grandson to talk to me. Just before I was going to bed, my grandson called, and we talked about what had happened and sharing our feelings. Our conversation ended with “I love you!”
      There was power, might and victory in what had taken place. The paradox is that there was not an ounce of violence. Thank you for your message.

      Margaret, thank you for sharing this powerful story from your family’s interactions. A great example of Christmas paradox, as you put it, and I’m sure your words are an encouragement to others. Have a blessed Christmas!

      Thank you for sharing the wonderful message with, 2013 has not been a good year for me, I lost my job and I had personal problems hence I was diagnosed with depression. It was the darkest time of my life I believed the only solution was to die. I went for depression counselling and treatment and the Psychiatrist told me I will have to take medication all my life but with God being the Mighty God that he is I am happy to say he refreshed my mind and showed me the beauty of life. He is truly a Mighty a God and he fights and wins our battles, and I don’t take medication anymore, Glory be to God for he is good!!!

      My husband was laid-off 1 year ago, but though the news was devastating, to see God take care of us by allowing for 6 months of continued pay, continued medical benefits and providing for our needs, has been a true blessing. I’m so glad we serve and worship a Mighty God.

    13. Rebecca Barlow Jordan on December 7th, 2013 10:35 am

      Jonda, thanks for sharing that encouraging testimony! God is so faithful!
