Shopping & Christmas Prayer

Today's Prayer

Today is Friday--the day after Thanksgiving. People flock to the malls and outlets to spend more money than any other day of the year. There are sales to catch, gifts to buy...and debts to incur.

God, please give us an extra nudge today and wisdom and a desire to live within our means today and in the days to come. You gave us a very special gift because of your love for us. And we should not give to others out of a sense of duty, but because we love or appreciate them. Help us remember that the gifts we may buy are no where near as important as the gifts of our time and love. Lord, I want to enjoy the simple pleasures of life...and make time for my friends and family this Christmas season. Thank you so much for your priceless gift of your Son, and the salvation you so lovingly provided for me. In my Savior's name I pray,


Amen.

What a beautiful prayer that gives us much to think about. Thank you!

This past year I've given animals for World Vision to use in 3rd world countries, to a few friends. They've loved that!
