This Week's Prayers
Monday, December 22, 2014
(Meditation: John 14:27)
God, we pray for our country and the world. We pray for those without jobs, without hope, without comfort. Break the reign of tyranny, terrorism, and oppression in the world. Make our whole world a place of human liberty, human rights, and human dignity. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: I Peter 1:24-25)
God, we are grateful that Your Word is truth, not just a collection of religious myths and stories designed to make us feel better today. God, "we are like grass, and all our glory is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers, and the flowers fall. But the Word of our God stands forever." Praise be to You, O God. Amen.

(Meditation: John 1:14)
God, we are surrounded by Christmas gifts, carefully selected and lovingly wrapped. On this Christmas Eve, we anticipate the joy of giving and receiving. But may we also be humbled by Your Greatest Gift and Your infinite love, so that we confess our sins and receive Your wondrous forgiveness and redemption. May peace and joy fill our hearts with gratitude for the Gift of Your Son, in Whose name we pray. Amen.

(Meditation: Luke 2:11-14)
On this Christmas Day, we come to the crude cradle in the bare stable in Bethlehem. We are shocked to see that the Creator of the world is a weak, helpless baby. With the heavenly hosts, we fall down on our knees to worship the King, for God is with us. How majestic is this humble sight! The world will never be the same. God is with us! Our lives will never be the same. God is with us! Glory be to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, good will to all. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Isaiah 9:6-9)
God, Christmas has come and gone. Carols have been sung. Gifts have been opened. Good food has been enjoyed. Now, the Christmas tree is losing some of its sparkle. Families are returning to their homes. God, help us to remember that none of these is the real meaning of Christmas. Help us to remember every day of the year the words, "For to us a child is born . . . and He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God . . . Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end." Hallelujah! Amen.
