Prayers leading to Christmas – 28

O Lord God, I thank you for the gift of new life that you have given me, by your Son Jesus Christ. I believe that by his death on the cross and by his glorious resurrection, I am set free from the bondage of sin, hell and death. So I praise you for revealing to me, your life giving Holy Word and the Gospel. I desire of my free will, that you cause me to live, a life worthy of being a believer in you, and also crucify the flesh. Preserve my life and those of my family and friends, against the evil plans of the Enemy of my soul. By my faith in Jesus, who is true God and true man, I know I have a hope and a future which is secure and full of salvation. Let your abundant life flow in me, by the Holy Spirit to all I preach the Gospel to. Let me never be lacking in understanding, in preaching it to anyone. Also, O Almighty Lord, please take care of my physical and mental frame, so that I’m not overcome by evil at anytime. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

O Lord God, let your grace shine upon my mind, so I that glorify you in spirit and in truth. Let my intellect never be like those who couldn’t recognise your Son Jesus as the Messiah at their time of reckoning. So please take away from me, any blindness that prevents me from receiving true wisdom from you above. Open the eyes of my mind and spirit, so that I honour Jesus Christ in all that I do. Guide me by the Holy Spirit, so that I remember every counsel from you O Lord. And most importantly, cause me to remember Jesus Christ in my thoughts every day. You have created my mind, and I ask that you take away each and every hindrance, that’s in any way preventing it from doing all the good that you want me to do. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Prayers leading to Christmas – 25

O Lord Jesus the Redeemer of the world, I pray that this Christmas and even further on, that you lead your people in a special way, to care for the poor and the needy. I ask in faith that you cause more of your preachers to speak about feeding the poor, being kind to the lonely, and visiting widows and orphans in their afflictions. Let them not shy away from preaching about the need to do good works in the name of the Lord God. By the Holy Spirit, give each and every of my Christian brothers and sisters the grace, to cheerfully help those in need of food, clothing, shelter and respect. Let us be the light that shines in the darkness to those who are in despair and gloom. I also pray that the people of the world, too do whatever they can, to bring good things to those in trouble. I ask eagerly that those in law enforcement are kind to the homeless and rescue people from slavery all over the world. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

Prayers leading to Christmas – 24

O Lord Jesus, give me courage to take you with me wherever I go. Just like Joseph and Mary did not abandon you right since your childhood, let me always hold on to you forever. Let my heart be like the good soil that you spoke of, which bore fruit a hundred fold. Let not my heart be like any bad soil which has initial joy in you but having no root it withers away. Not let the Enemy of my soul steal away my desire for you by his evil deceptions. In days of luxury and enjoyment, let me cling on to the Gospel by having more self control in my life. In days of trouble and pain, cause me to always call upon you O Lord. Always cause me to be brave in spirit and in truth, so that my deeds are always good and so give reason for others to glorify God our Father in heaven. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

Prayers leading to Christmas – 23

O Lord Jesus, help me to keep waiting for your return with expectation and purity. The prophets and saints of old, waited for your first coming and were not disappointed, for they are comforted in your presence in heaven. Give me hope and joy, as I ponder on your second coming. Keep the faith in me ever glowing, for glory of God our Father. By your Holy Spirit counsel me that I remember your Gospel each and everyday of my life. Give me the grace to be unblemished by the cares, pleasures and allure of this world, so that I’m truly ready to receive you. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

Prayers leading to Christmas – 22

O Lord Jesus, I ask in faith to grow more and more in you. Help me to know you in spirit by the Holy Scriptures. Lead me by your Holy Spirit into remembering all things you teach me by your Word. And I know by this I’ll be able to give greater love and honour to God our Father. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen

Prayers leading to Christmas – 21

O Lord Jesus, you are the only begotten Son of God in whom dwells fullness of the Godhead. I thank God for sending you, by the Holy Spirit, to redeem us from sin and death. I pray for those living in Israel, Judea and Samaria that they are preached the Gospel everwhere, till they say “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord”. Even as my brothers and sisters in you O Christ Jesus are saved, so by that same grace cause those who live in the land you walked, healed and preached in, to also desire you more than any human tradition. You were born to be the Shepherd of the lost sheep of Israel, and so I intercede for their remnant in this age, to come back to you Jesus, the good shepherd. Open their eyes, that they may see their true hope and salvation. I pray that you banish all the mountains of deceptions that hinder their progress towards you the Messiah. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

Prayers leading to Christmas – 20

O Lord Jesus Christ, the only Saviour of the World, I pray for safety of all Christians as they celebrate in each joyous season especially Christmas. In the past few years, there have been dangerous attacks on my Christian brothers and sisters, all over the world, around this time. Give hope and consolation, to those who lost their friends and loved ones, during these vile attacks. I pray that you send forth your Holy Angels, to guard your people, all over the world at this time. Cause the enemies of the Christian faith, to give up their evil schemes, against your people. And about those who still want to do any evil, please cause their plans to fail, and be confronted and defeated by the agents of justice worldwide. Let all the weapons formed, against those who believe in you, to not prosper. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

O Lord Jesus, there are many in this world who have still not heard of you. While we celebrate your birth, we pray for the lost and the unsaved. We ask that we are able to preach to all nations. Let all resources and graces be available for your Church, to reach out to them. Cause the people of the Church to remember again and again, that there are still lost sheep who need to be with their One true Shepherd. Awaken all my Christian brothers and sisters to preach your Gospel to everyone whom you lead them to by your Holy Spirit. Help us to reconcile all men, women and children to our Father the Lord God in heaven. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

O Lord God our father in heaven, holy indeed is your name. I thank you, that I’m part of your great big family. I praise you for your marvellous work, in sending Jesus Christ your only begotten son, to reconcile all men, women and children, to yourself. I have faith, that you will continue to lead your family on earth, which is the Church to prevail against the gates of the Enemy and preach the Gospel to all of the nations. Bless all my Christian brothers and sisters worldwide to be awake in spirit that they be found worthy for the second coming of Jesus Christ. I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen
