Christmas Eve Prayer

My prayer for this Christmas Eve: “Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” ~ Psalm 51:12

God reminded me on this day, the day before Christmas, just *why* we celebrate… because Jesus came for *me*… To bring Light into the Darkness of *my own heart*. Through a painful experience God reminded me of the darkness that my heart is capable of… And that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom *I AM CHIEF* (1 Tim 1:15)… But God did not allow me today (or for eternity!) to remain in darkness- Jesus said, “I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.” Thank you God, for sending Jesus “ to open their eyes {and mine}, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they {and me!} may receive forgiveness of sins.” (Acts 26:18)

Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?- Psalm 85:6

And the Lord has accomplished his will for me! I have been laid low and HE has lifted me up!

“For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. – Isaiah 57:15

Isaiah 25:9 “It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
