A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities

I hope you are finding ways to enjoy the Christmas Advent-ure this year.
  • Take a deep breath every time you realize how stress or tension has filled your day, and think about the reason-for-the-season...
  • God's forgiving love expressed in and through and because of Jesus...
  • And pray for family, friends, even foes, to receive faith, hope and love that moves them to explore the God of Christmas at Christmas.
I composted "The 12 Prays of Christmas" just for that purpose. Hope they help,

 The 12 "Prays" of Christmas
  1. Pray for the light of the Gospel to lead people to explore God at Christmas...and for courage to invite many as-you-go...
  2. Pray those who are lonely-unsafe-hopeless will know there is room at the inn this Christmas; our invitations to the church as a safe, welcoming place in January and February
  3. Pray we become like messengers-from-God ("angels") when we invite the community to explore God at Christmas and to explore the God of Christmas in the new year
  4. Pray this will be a Christmas when many students and young adults hear and respond to God's call to believe in Jesus and to love their neighbor
  5. Pray for those who, like King Herod, oppose the life-transformation message of the Gospel; becoming an obstacle or threat to those who are ready to explore God
  6. Pray for many children to understand the truth of the Christmas story; that they believe and become lifelong disciples of the baby who came to be our savior
  7. Pray for many wise men and women who will begin the journey of seeking truths about God this Christmas 
  8. Pray men will, like Joseph who listened to the angel, have courage to pursue faith and become followers of the savior, Jesus
  9. Pray Christmas guests will, like Mary, ponder in their heart the truths they hear as they explore God this Christmas and explore the God of Christmas in January
  10. Pray those you are inviting to explore God will know that the grace of God that brings salvation to all people appeared when Jesus was born
  11. Pray for your church, your group, your follow-up with those who came to a Christmas gathering
  12. Pray for the friend, neighbor, associate you will invite to explore the God of Christmas with you/your church this January
