25 Christmas Prayers – Day 12
Day 12 – Adonai, the Lord
It’s so easy to call you “Lord,” yet sometimes difficult to follow You in complete obedience. Jesus, some see You only as a man; others call you Savior. But You are also our “Adonai, Lord,” the blessed controller of our lives every day.
When You’re on the Throne
When You are on the throne of our hearts and lives, peace and safety thrive. Priorities fall into place. It’s easier to do Your will.
You are “Lord,” whether we acknowledge You as Adonai or not. But when we do, how differently our lives unfold!
Lord, one day with You is truly better than a thousand in the palaces of kings. You call our names, and a flood of joy overflows. When You command our lives, a fountain of confidence takes over.
You Deserve Our All
Many call You “Adonai,” but self often intervenes, and we choose our own way instead of Yours. This Christmas, Lord, we come to You with bowed hearts desiring truly to celebrate You as our “Adonai.”
Help us to serve You in obedience, faithfully and joyfully. After all You’ve done for us, You deserve no less than our all!
