If you are filled with holiday stress instead of the holiday spirit, it’s time to pray for sweet release.
I have bought into stress, re-gifted my worries and added credit card debt to my shopping list.
Help me to exchange my holiday blues for a glad heart, my loneliness for Your presence, my stress for You perfect peace.
I stop and think about Your Christmas gift to me, the dear babe in a manger, so innocent, so holy, such a sacrifice of love. He is the reason for this season.
My gift to You, Lord, is to hush my grumbling and praise Your name.
I list my blessings, one by one, before You with humble gratitude.
Fill me full of Your joy as I release to You my holiday blues.
May my heart be merry in Your love.
In Jesus’s name, Amen
