Today is the fifth 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.
Day 5 – Immanuel – God with Us
Lord, how is it that a righteous God could be “with us?” We are sinful. You are holy. You are in heaven. We live on earth.
Yet the very essence of Christmas is rooted in an eternal, loving plan that brought You here to live in us, with us, and through us.
Because of Christmas, You are now “with us.” Long ago men housed Your “presence” in a tabernacle made by human hands with supernatural instructions. But Christmas ushered in Your presence here on earth, walking among us, living with us.
You no longer live in columns of clouds or pillars of fire. Read more

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? Read more

During the Christmas season this year, I hope these 25 Christmas Prayers celebrating the wonderful names of our precious Lord will once again draw you closer to the One who is the true reason for Christmas. Be blessed as you celebrate the 25 days of Christmas with these Christmas Prayers. I love sharing about Jesus!
Day 1 – Wonderful Counselor
Lord, at Christmas time and all through the year we acknowledge you as our Wonderful Counselor. You are truly a counselor full of wonder. And Your ways are both mysterious and wonder-filled. The counsel You give is marvelous and wise–so unlike our own thoughts and plans.
Who can explain Your wonderful plan to send us Your very best–Your own Son? And how grateful we are that You even design wonderful, unique plans for each of us as Your children. Read more

I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas. I woke up a week before Christmas with a stiff neck that wouldn’t move in any direction, but was so grateful when it loosened up in time to fly to spend a week with family at Christmas. We missed the snow back home, but we enjoyed a white Christmas wherever we went the last three years at Christmas. So I can’t complain.
Most of all, I pray that the celebration of “CHRIST-mas” this year brought you closer in your relationships with Jesus, family, and others. It’s been such a joy to connect with so many of you through the last few years in this blog, and I look forward to another year of sharing encouragement from God’s heart and mine.
In case you missed some of my blogs last year, here is a list of my Top 10 Posts of 2012: Read more

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. Read more
