This is the 25th in a series of daily Christmas blogs: 25 Christmas Prayers celebrating the names of our precious Lord. Featured today is Kings of Kings and Lord of Lords. 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 – 25 King of Kings and Lord of Lords
KING OF KINGS ROSE OF SHARON BLESSED CONTROLLER TEACHER JESUS ALPHA AND OMEGA MASTER
THE CHRIST SON OF GOD THE VINE THE WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE SAVIOUR GOOD SHEPHERD SON OF GOD
LORD OF LORDS WONDERFUL COUNSELOR MIGHTY GOD EVERLASTING FATHER PRINCE OF PEACE I AM
Jesus, all authority and power has been given to You by Your Father. And one day we will share Your glory and inherit all the throne privileges of Your royal throne forever. Even now, as we approach Your throne day or night, You will welcome our request. One day, every knee will bow and every tongue will delight in confessing You as King of kings and Lord of lords.
We Are Your Children Forever
As King of kings, no gifts or tokens of our love could ever be enough for You. You never leave us standing on the front porch of Your heart. You extend Your royal scepter, and to Your children You say, “Come”—into Your very throne room! Your royal decree of love can never be reversed. We who know and love You are Your children forever.
King of Our Hearts and Lord of Our Lives
This Christmas, we celebrate and worship You as the King of Kings and Lord of lords. Truly, You are the King of our hearts and Lord of our lives. What an incredible, awesome God You are! And what a day that will be when we finally get to worship You and see You face to face!
“On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16 NIV
Not Enough Space and Time
There’s not enough space and not enough time to share all the names for the Trinity: God, the Father, God, the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit. But during this season, may the names I’ve listed in these 25 prayer blogs whet your appetite to know more—more about Him, more of His names, and all they include.
Seek and Find
Most of you will not be checking your e-mails or surfing the internet for these kind of posts. But when things settle down and the season is past, I pray you’ll take time to scroll through and meditate on these names. Do your own study. Do a “seek and find” for the names of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Speak those names back to God as you worship Him daily. Take time to praise the Lord for sending His precious Son, and spend some time thanking Him for His most wonderful names—and all they mean to you. Remember that the Lord inhabits the praises of HIs people!
What Are You Giving Jesus This Year?
Today is Christmas Day! What are you giving Jesus this year? If you’re hard up for ideas, try the gift of yourself. I guarantee, Jesus will love it!
Here are some parting thoughts for you in my simple Christmas poem:
The stockings once hung by the chimney with care,
are scattered with gifts from the tree, now bare.
But the joy from the giving still lingers there,
mixed with Jesus’ own love and our thank-you prayer.
Christmas is over? Perish the thought!
It’s not something you open, not things that are bought.
Giving life, sharing love, as heaven draws near–
Christmas is Jesus, each day of the year. -RBJ
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS!
My Personal Christmas Prayer for You
My personal Christmas wish and prayer for you is that you will fall in love with Jesus over and over and over again this year. Whether you live alone or with a houseful of loved ones, You are loved by God, who sent His most precious gift to You at Christmas. May the Lord bless You and Yours richly as You share His love with others every day of the year.
