An Advent Prayer

images-23“My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,  for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed,” Luke 1: 46-48

Almighty God,
During this advent season I thank you for the greatest gift of all- the life and love of your dear son Jesus the Christ. I pray that I always remember the true meaning of Christmas giving. I express gratitude to you O’ God for loving me enough to give your precious son, and I am grateful for the privilege to go to Him in prayer.

Moreover, I praise you for the blessings that you have bestowed upon my family and I. I acknowledge that I do not need tall trees, baring twinkling lights, protecting wrapped gifts to feel blessed. Like Mary, I am blessed because you have given me a Savior who dwells in my heart and lives through my prayers, service and praise. Therefore even in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season I pray Mary’s prayer and claim that future generations will call me blessed.

I am blessed because I have a savior who loves me unconditionally. I am blessed because my latter days will be better than my former days. I am blessed because all things work together for my good. I am blessed because I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me. I am blessed because God you are able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I can ever ask or think. I am blessed because you are good to me God. I am blessed because when I am weak you are strong. I am blessed because you are my Sheppard. I am blessed in the city! I am blessed in the field! I am blessed when I come and when I go! I thank you for all the blessings that you have bestowed upon me this and every season.
Thank you God for your blessings and your giving power!

In Jesus Name!
Amen
