Scripture

Luke 2:1-24

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was the angel’s message to the shepherds? What was the shepherds’ response?

Application

Do I really believe that the Savior was born for ME? Do I go straight to the Lord to see what He has for me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Merciful and amazing God, I thank You and praise You for the good news of great joy that is for all the people: a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for us in the city of David! Along with angels on that first Christmas night, I proclaim, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors!” Give me a heart like that of the shepherds, who instantly believed Your word and acted on it out of a desire to see You personally. Thank You, THANK YOU, Lord, for the gift of Jesus! In the name of Christ Jesus I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast
  • Travis & Consuela Sauer (Mikayla, Christian, Donte, Cheyenne, Sera, Ella, Thomas)
