Let’s start each day with prayer!
The Holidays can be full of many emotions. By starting each day with prayer, you are guaranteed to have a more positive outlook on the hustle and bustle of Christmas. Christmas is a time of reflection on the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It is a time of cheer, gathering with family and praising God together. But for some, this is not the case.
So I am challenging you to dedicate the next 24 days to prayer. I have written a prayer for each day leading up to Christmas Day. I pray many blessings for each of your families this Christmas season.
