It’s Christmas Eve. God has a gift for us!

1 John 4:9 (CEB) “This is how the love of God is revealed to us: God has sent his only Son into the world so that we can live through him.”  :In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Sonto be the propitiation for our sins “(1 John 4:10 New King James Version  NKJV).

My Prayer

Father, thank you for your mercy and your grace. Thank you for the peace that comes only from knowing who you are and not just knowing of you and your greatness. We also thank you for those dark nights in our lives when we wonder, and or doubt who we are and why we are doing what we are doing.  It is during these times when we stop speaking so loudly in our minds that we can hear. . . .

Your crystal clear voice that says,

“I know how that pain feels. I experienced it when I saw my son born in that filthy barn. He deserved glory and splendor. I felt it when the king slaughtered all of those children in his attempt to kill my precious son. I felt the deep darkness and depth of blackness on that day when my perfection became polluted with the sins of the world, and my son was covered with that which I despise… SIN.. the sins of humanity. Yes, the sins of every man woman and child that has ever lived from Adam until the day He returns. In fact, it was so black that I had to turn my back on Him, my one, and only Son, to prevent myself from wiping humanity out again as I did in the flood. Yes, my child, I say to you through my word, I know what emotional pain and blackness look like. That is why I tell you that you can have peace.

  1. I offer you the peace that you gained when Jesus was beaten with the cat of nine tails.
  2. I offer you the peace that you gained when the flesh was ripped from His body as the whip left it each time the scourger beat Him.
  3. I offer you the peace that you gained when they placed that crown with the 3″ thorns on His head..the thorns that pierced His head when they jammed it on.
  4. I offer you the peace that you gained when they spat on Him and jeered at Him and your sins piled upon Him.
  5. I offer you the peace that you gained when they laid Him on that tree and hammered those nails into his hands and feet.
  6. I offer you the peace that passes all understanding that you gained when they hoisted the cross, and the nails ripped His flesh as His bodyweight pull Him down.
  7. I offer you the peace that He gave His life for after He said, “Eli, Eli lama sabachthani!”.
  8.  Do you know why he said that? My precious son, my one and only son, the Word that became flesh, the one who spoke all things into existence, the one who created you and said, “it is very good; do you know why he said that?
  9.  He said it because I turned my back on Him and walked away. He had to experience that darkness alone so YOU, yes YOU, my child can have peace!”

Prayer 2

Dear God, thank you for that sacrifice… I will always have words to say to you even if they are just thank you for the cross!

I plead the blood of Jesus over the pain, sickness, and emotional trauma that so many people are going through right now, and I ask you, Father, to send someone to these people so they can stop, look, listen, and think about the most precious gift that they have ever received.

I sent you this priceless gift of mine to let you know you are not alone in your suffering and that all things work together for your good because I love you.

Final prayer.

Heavenly Father,

Let us experience the peace that passes all understanding that Jesus died for. Give us an understanding that that peace if just a prayer away.  In the mighty and majestic name of Jesus Christ, our savior..the one who was born so we could have perfect peace. THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT. Thank you for blessing my soul.
