God of my Fathers. God of my people. God of the mountains, the seas, the rivers, the lakes, the sun, moon and stars. Indeed you made us all and everything that makes up our great universe. How do I keep quiet and not praise you? You have been so good to me my Lord and my God. I exalt you name my maker.
Lord Jesus as we prepare for Christmas we are excited at the opportunity to remind the world of your coming to our world and what you came to do for us to save us from sin and prepare us for heaven someday. Lord this is also the time when we take the opportunity to remember those with limited means and the disadvantaged amongst us. Help us to continue to do our best to help such without judging them. May we never close our hearts to them. Remind us Lord to take extra steps to help such people at Christmas and during the whole of the holiday season. Amen (12/11/16)
