25 Christmas Prayers – Day 24
Day 24 – Messiah
Lord, some people are still waiting for Your arrival the first time. They wanted a king, not a servant. They wanted relief, not true freedom. They wanted recognition, not relationship.
You Are the Promised Messiah
But You are the promised Messiah, and Your mission is complete. You are the One who will one day reign in Your heavenly kingdom—your true home forever. You chose to be born in a stable, and You were visited by kings and shepherds alike. You descended to earth as a babe, but You will return one day as a King.
You Are Our Salvation
Those who failed to recognize Your coming, whose eyes were blind to the truth, missed the best gift from heaven. You are the promised One, foretold for generations. You are God’s own messenger, God made flesh. You are the Anointed One, God’s Son, Our Salvation.
This Christmas, Jesus, we celebrate You as the Messiah. There is no one beside You!
“We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.”John 1:41
