Plea for Grace

A Different sort of Christmas Prayer

Posted on: December 17, 2009

The barrage of images is relentless — commercials, newspaper ads, radio spots, email, website popups — all reminding us of what we don’t have, and what we need to “make Christmas special.”
It’s so easy to get sidetracked; to allow our thoughts to turn to what I have been “denied” rather than to the incredible mercy and blessing of God.  The following was one of my prayers this morning. . .

Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.  But I will flee from these things, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and gentleness.  (1 Timothy 6:9-11)

a Blessed Christmas, everyone,

I want to know what you think!
