Praying Together in the Christmas Season

Praying Together in the Christmas Season--
This Thought was presented two years ago on the Praying Together Course Lesson 13 and is re-presented again.
 
Christ wants a praying church—What about a praying family?  With the Christmas season upon us, this would be a good time to and look for ways to try and apply some of our learning about praying together. 
Taking that idea, I present the following to each of you as a challenge to you to try the following:  Look for opportunities to pray with your spouse, children, family, and friends.   Take a few minutes together and remember what Christmas is about, especially about the true meaning of Christmas and the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Then encourage each person say a brief sentence prayer that is related to what they have just considered about Christmas.
 
At the end- you could even sing a carol like ‘Silent Night’ and then say ‘Amen’ or just have everyone say ‘AMEN’  together, if you don’t sing.
 
This could be done at a meal, at a time when the family is together, or other special time. It is possible that what you do this year, you may want to do in upcoming years—could be the possible start of a wonderful family traditionand be an encouragement to all.

 How true. What a joy to see my family grow in The lord each year as all the prayers together cumulate in that sweet moment we gather to give thanks and praise to our Lord on Christmas morning.. Hearing my teenage boys pray from the time they could hardly form a sentence to heart felt love of The Lord in knowing Him as their Lord and Savior. I speak now of our two special boys but I still see with our children who are married and have children of their own who continue to love and pray with their families. Oh how the blessings flow as we gather together as a family with God not only on Christmas day but every day as our family gathers for whatever reason.  Just sharing a prayer as we gather to eat, to embark on a journey, and to pray for a special friend or circumstance. Times may be hard but what an opportunity to grow as we put our faith in The One who can take our burdens from us and give us the opportunity to strengthen our faith muscles. Oh precious is the flow that makes us white as snow.  Thank You, Jesus, for the blood you shed for all humanity. Looking forward to starting a new year with you, Lewis, and looking forward to the day we meet face to face, and more so, to that time I look in the eyes of Our Lord.  Thanking The Lord in advance for the joy and happiness He has in store for You and Your Family.  Merry Christmas !!!!!!!!!!!!
