Dec. 4 – 21 Days of Prayer

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.Colossians 3:17 NIV

I’ve used a simple structure for prayer at many times in my life called ACTS in Prayer.  During these first few days as we begin to pray for LIGHT, our Christmas services on December 22 & 23, we’ll use ACTS in Prayer as a guide.

The T stands for Thanksgiving.  I love it when my kids are grateful for what we do for them.  I love it even more when they take the time to express their gratitude. Someone said: “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

Thanksgiving allows us to enter the presence of God (Psalm 100).  Take a moment to express thanks to God for your many blessings; for things as simple yet profound as being able to see and read.

As you pray for LIGHT, thank God for His blessings in your life and ask Him to help someone you know, and people in general, to understand what it means to be thankful for the grace of God through Jesus Christ through their involvement in our Christmas services.
