Father, if I randomly asked people why we celebrate Christmas, how many would actually know and understand? Tell us the story again. Let us glorify God with all we hear and see. Let us tell others of what is told to us through your Word, how Jesus became flesh and walked on earth, how those who walked with him witnessed his glory and testify to his coming. How Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. May those we tell go home, praising and glorifying God with all they hear and see. Open hearts and eyes to the truth in this marvelous story. Widen the circle of believers. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1 14 ESV)
