After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem…

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 01/07/2013

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem… On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father ‘it’s not enough to just revisit the birth of Christ once a year though. We must take on the role of each character in the manger scene and live what their example has taught us. We must have the integrity of Joseph, the obedience of Mary, the faith of the shepherds and the perseverance of the Magi. The only way we can have that kind of integrity, obedience, faith and perseverance is to allow the love of Jesus Christ to be born in us. Then, like Joseph, we will make right choices; like Mary, we will fulfill God’s purpose for our lives; like the shepherds, we will live out our faith; like the Magi, we will lead others to the heart of Jesus.’ With this in mind I come to You through the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ who lives within me so that You will create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me, for my one walk in and with You. So that You will show and teach me how to be a channel of Your peace and love in all situations with all people. So that You will help me be strong in You and Your almighty power, putting on Your full armor by standing firm with the belt of Your truth buckled around my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace, taking up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one who lurks in each moment waiting to separate me from You. Taking the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your word. And praying in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests for me and mine in fulfillment of Your will. With this in mind, being alert and always praying for those You place in my path. Asking that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel. (r or l) Remembering that if I get nothing else done this day, let me spend it loving You and others first, as You love me. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
