Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, “God with us.” Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. Matthew 1:23-25

Dear Blessed Lord Jesus, good morning. I love you, thank you, Praise You and give You all the honor and glory for this new day. Lord Jesus, we know names matter to you, and we pray they matter to our children, grand children and great grand children. I believe you will imprint Your names in their precious souls for a lifetime. I believe being worthy of that blessing. Father God, please guide our children to your gift of salvation. That they will come to know you, to love you, and to walk close to you throughout their life. That they may know your forgiveness and grace. May they boldly claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior. AS they guide their children and children’s children in the near future like today, guide them as they make choices that have eternal consequences. Help them to follow you each moment of their life. Christmas should be everyday as we give of ourselves, time, talents and treasures. I thank you, praise and give you all the glory in Jesus Precious Name Amen.
