40 Days of Prayer – The Reason For The Season

Christmas celebrates the coming of Christ.  The invasion of the visible world by the invisible.  “We interrupt this broadcast!”  For a specific purpose, says the Bible.  “I have come that they might have LIFE and have it abundantly.”  (John 10:10)  Think about it.  Apart from this result (people born into supernatural LIFE rather than just natural life, unlimited LIFE rather than life limited by years) the coming of Christ was a colossal failure!  The reason for the season is the healing of the human heart and the gift of eternal life!

So. . .on this 11th day of our prayer journey, will you pray for people to be called to Christ?

Will you pray for them to experience an insatiable hunger for eternal answers?  For every Christmas carol to wake within them an awareness of their own emptiness, a determination to “follow the star” until it leads to the Savior?  Will you pray for the Spirit to use every Christmas concert, every worship service, every testimony?  Take time with this assignment.  It is reason for the season.

  1. Amazing grace
    How sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost, but now I’m found
    Was blind, but now I see
    ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
    And grace my fears relieved
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed
    My chains are gone
    I’ve been set free
    My God, my Savior has ransomed me
    And like a flood His mercy reigns
    Unending love, amazing grace
    (Chris Tomlin – Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

    Father, call the lost into this Life!! May the blind see. May we know You in ever increasing measure. Amen.
