Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for the cold weather you bring into our lives. It reminds me to be thankful and that you provide in all situations, things we tend to take for granted. Thank you for a warm house to live in, even when when the family thinks I keep the thermostat too low I am thankful I am doing it by choice. Thank you for a warm bed and warm covers for my family. Thank you for reliable cars that get us to our destination safe and warm. Thank you for the cell phones we can use should we have problems with those cars. Thank you for the warm food/drinks to help keep us warm. Thank you for employment in these times when so many are with out a job.

Lord I lift up to you those who are homeless, I pray that you will lead them to a warm place to lay down their head and for warm food/drink. I lift up to you those who do not have their own transportation, I pray that whatever means they use they can stay warm and arrive at their destination safely. I pray for those who are seeking employment, show them the plan you have for them and give them hope.

And I thank you for giving us your Son Jesus Christ. During this season help us not to get caught up in the weather and hustle and bustle of the holiday. But help us to focus on what is important, the birth of your Son. You are the Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords and the perfect Counselor. You deserve all our praise and worship, there is no other God like you, no other God as loving, as gracious, as merciful. I give my life to you, you are the potter and I am the clay, make me as you want me. Now there may be a little resistance at times but I know you will help me work through it.

Thank you for what you have done, for what you are doing, for what you will do.
Amen

We are never alone.
