Our Christmas Prayer

Today, we thank you, our prayer partners, for participating in the Leading Influence prayer networks. Your contribution helps build a firm foundation for each province and our nation, brick by brick. We want to bless you and your families as we continue to lift our nation to our Heavenly Father.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow. We adore You especially as we focus our attention on your grace and goodness evident in the giving of your son, Jesus, to be the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. Lord God, our hearts are humbled as we consider the Advent of Jesus, the baby and child who grew to minister,  suffer and die for our sins. We glory in the resurrection power that was at work so long ago, raising Jesus from the dead and conquering death. We now can shout, “O Death, where is your sting?” And, we anticipate with great eagerness the coming of Jesus as the Mighty Warrior who is victorious.

Lord God, continue to lead this nation, revealing yourself to people in our families, neighbourhoods and regions. Let your light shine for all the world to see. Shine your light in and through me. Today, we want to bless all those praying this prayer. May each person sense your Holy Spirit in a very active and personal way as they meditate upon your word and listen for your voice. Bless their families with hope, peace, joy and love; we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
