“A Prayer For Joy”

December 18, 2017

Praying man Father, like the pre-born baby, John, who leaped for joy upon hearing the voice of our Lord’s mother, may we too experience unbounding joy as we read the Scriptures since they reveal the fulfillment of promises made to her and to all the world that she would be with child and bear a son, and she would call His name Emmanuel, which means God with us. Just as Mary was blessed because she believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her, we too are blessed in our daily lives as we trust You for the fulfillment of all Your promises, including the promise that our Messiah will return to earth and gather up the faithful to transport us to our future eternal home in heaven. It’s the greatest joy of the season and for every day of our earthly dwelling. Thank You, Father, for making it possible through Jesus, Your Son. Amen.
