Prayers leading to Christmas – 27
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.

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.

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.

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.

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 God the Almighty One I give you the glory and praise, for your miracles in my life and in those who believe in you. No one can do miracles greater than you. I thank you for the greatest miracle of all, which is salvation by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, for those who believe. I pray for great and greater miracles, to be done all over the world, so that your Holy Name is glorified. By your Holy Spirit, lead your worshipper’s all over the world, to follow your Son Jesus Christ, in both word and action so they reach the fullness of the faith. I plead that you rescue and protect, my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, all around the world from all dangers both seen and unseen at all times. I pray especially for those in the Christian faith, who are actively targeted for their trust in Jesus, so that you give them hope and courage and relief, and by that they adore you even more. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen
