Welcoming December 2020 As We Prepare for 2021

December 1, 2020

“Oh Father, I praise you for this month when we can remember and celebrate the gift of Your Son. How we thank You for Your steadfast love and grace in sending Jesus to live among us, to demonstrate Your nature. How we are humbled by His birth in a manger with animals in a stable when He deserved a mansion. With full hearts, we glorify You for His willingness to hang in shame on a Roman cross, shedding His blood for our sins. Oh, Father, may your Son, Jesus, be the focus of December, rather than parties and gifts. Make us even more thankful for what He gave us so we can praise Your name all our days. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”

In this month, where we reflect on “the year” of  uncertainty and “the year” of politcal chaos, Jehovah Shalom, The One, is certain. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father, who controls ALL things, including justice, peace, and 2021.

November 2020—Praying, Praying, and Praying

November 1, 2020

“Dear Father, I’m overwhelmed with praise for all that you are and all that you have done. You spoke the world into existence and hold all things together by your power. You oversee the workings of this vast universe yet you take the time to care about me. You gave me life and breath and know every time a hair of mine falls. Oh, Lord, I worship you for your steadfast love. May I treasure you all the more this month we celebrate Thanksgiving, and freedom within our nation. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”

In this month of continued uncertainty and yes, politcal chaos, Jehovah Shalom, The One, is certain. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father, who controls ALL things, including justice and peace.
