Father, every day closer to another celebration of Jesus’ birth is another day to sing your praises. Let me join in the song of the heavenly host, declaring your goodness. What a joyful noise we make together to welcome your Son. What a picture of worship that invokes. What a marvelous chorus gathered, singing along with all the saints and angels! O God, let us rejoice with the heavens like the first Christmas. Fill our hearts with the songs the angels sang to the shepherds, the ones they sang over the manger. We sing, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2: 14 ESV) I bring praise in the name and authority of Jesus, the one born of a virgin, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
