Today is the second in a series of daily Christmas blogs: 25 Christmas Prayers, celebrating the names of our precious Lord. Featured today is Mighty God. I hope they will enrich your Christmas season and draw you closer to the One who is the true reason for Christmas.
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 poser. 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).
How has the Lord been a “Mighty God” to you?
