3rd Gift at Christmas


Third Gift of Christmas – Prayer

 

But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”  Luke 22:32 ESV

p1030026

That sense of being totally alone in the world can be worse for some people as Christmas works its way closer. Even people surrounded by friends can feel abandoned because of inner struggles that no one else knows. Why not take a moment to tell someone you will be praying for them, or better yet, pray right away with them. Some things in life are so heavy, so difficult, so complicated and so unbearable that only prayer can meet that need. There is no greater gift we can give someone than to be able to truthfully say “but I have prayed for you.”

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
