25 Christmas Prayers – Day 24


This is the 24th in a series of daily Christmas blogs: 25 Christmas Prayers celebrating the names of our precious Lord. Featured today is Messiah. I hope these simple prayer blogs will enrich your Christmas season and draw you close to the One who is the true reason for Christmas. (I’ll return to my regular, weekly blogs after Christmas).

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.

Messiah, 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


What About You?

Is Jesus your Messiah? Are you watching for His second coming? I’d love for you to share.

    Hi Rebecca,
    I just want to thank you soooo much for the wonderful Prayers for Christmas. I love them!!! I have been posting them to my FB page and I’ve been getting some real positive responses.

Your devotionals and encouragement have been a special blessing to me this Christmas season. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us.

    Jesus has brought light to a lot of lives. He heals and he delivers. Every Christmas, his light gets brighter.
