5 Most Grace-Filling Prayers To Say As You Prepare for This Christmas

The month of December ushers us into the season of life, love and light. A season when we commemorate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. Thoughts of family reunions, special meals, fancy dresses, picnics and pastries fill our minds and we just can’t wait for Christmas to come. Many already are making plans and preparations for the best house decors, the most elegant tree decorations. But asides all these, have we thought to prepare our hearts? This season comes with a flurry of overwhelming activities such that we might find ourselves forgetting the true essence of Christmas; A celebration of the love and life of Christ. As we hold our breaths in anticipation of this great season, let us meditate on Christ’s birth as we connect our hearts to Him through prayers.

This is a list of beautiful prayers we can say to prepare our hearts for this Christmas season:

1. A Prayer to Remember What Christmas is All About

Lord, I thank You for coming to earth so You could redeem me. When I think of the extent to which You were willing to go in order to save me, it makes me want to shout, to celebrate, and to cry with thankfulness. You love me so much, and I am so grateful for that love. Without You, I would still be lost and in sin. But because of everything You have done for me, today I am free; my life is blessed; Jesus is my Lord; Heaven is my home; and Satan has no right to control me. I will be eternally thankful to You for everything You did to save me! I pray this in Jesus’ name!

2. The Blessing of Christmas

May your life gets filled up with lots of love, joy, happiness and that spirit to live. May the Lord, the angel of happiness, the shepherds’ curiosity brings that surprise in your life. May we all live in peace and harmony and follow with all determination the message of Jesus. May world get filled with the message of the almighty Jesus Christ. May everywhere, we can see harmony and happiness. From chirping of the birds to barking of dogs in night, may every little things sounds sweet

5. Prayer before Christmas Dinner

God of all gifts, we thank you for the many ways you have blessed us this day. We are grateful each of those who are gathered around this table. We ask you to bless us and our food and to bless those we love who are not with us today. In our gratitude and love, we remember your humble birth into our lives and pray for those who are without enough to eat. We remember the stable in which you were born and pray for those who have no place to live. We remember your challenging message of caring and giving and we pray for peace in families and nations throughout the world. We bless you and give you thanks in your Spirit who brings our hearts to life the Christmas Day and forever. Amen.

While we make preparations for Christmas, let’s not forget the reason for the season. Christ in all things in all places.
