On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me three christmas prayers. I'm sitting in my office now, it's completely quiet - the offices are closed, the christmas lights on the trees outside seem to drip like the rain around them. I'm putting the finishing touches on what I'll say tomorrow night at our Christmas Eve services and waiting for a family who is coming in to be baptized. My spirit is reflective and there are three prayers that resonate in my soul now.
Prayer One: I pray that thousands throughout our church and other churches around the world will come to know Jesus as something more than a baby this year - that He will become their Savior.
Prayer Two: I pray that as my family and yours open gifts on Christmas morning, they won't forget the truest gifts of the season: the son of God sent to save us from our sins, the warmth of family that God has blessed us with, the gift of life and each breath we take, the blessing of friends who love us.
Prayer Three: I pray that it will snow. You knew this was on my list. We only need about three fewer degrees. God controls the wind. Please God, give us some snow.
