Today is the tenth in a series of daily Christmas blogs: 25 Christmas prayers celebrating the names of our precious Lord. Today’s name is Son of David. I truly hope these simple prayer/blogs will enrich your Christmas season and will draw you closer to the One who is the true reason for Christmas.
We’re all guilty sometimes of desiring great events and exciting passages for our lives. But Jesus, Son of David, greatness was not Your aspiration or goal.
Son of David, God’s Own Son
This Christmas, help us to remember Your example. You left Your Father’s throne in heaven and identified Yourself with humanity.
You had the lineage of a king as the Son of David, and You were God’s own Son. Yet You are the King Himself.
You Demonstrated Humility
Only You, Jesus, would ride through a winner’s circle on the back of a donkey. In Your birth, Your life, and Your death, You demonstrated for us the humility and submission of a lowly servant. You were exalted in due time. Your pain was our gain, and Your strife brought us life.
Hosanna to You, Son of David
This Christmas we celebrate You, Jesus. And we join with believers around the world shouting Hosanna to you!
