Prayer of reflection

Lord we come to you this busy season to pause and reflect on the true reason for this season. The need to celebrate your first coming as a lowly babe in the manger. We appreciate you laying aside your heavenly glory and coming as a person to experience what we experience and to show us how to live and overcome in this world. Lord you show us that although you are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords you humbled yourself and came as one who serves. Help us to have the same humility so we do not seek to exalt ourselves high over the other  but rather to seek to serve. Thank you Lord that through you the pain, sadness and sickness in this world is overcome. Only Jesus can satisfy my soul, only He can change my life and make me whole. I never knew true satisfaction until I found you Lord. Help us to keep seeking you in every area of life. The wise men of old came to seek Him who is born the King of the Jews and we seek you as well. Lord we seek to please you, to serve you, to love you, to honor you and to worship you. This Christmas season we seek Him who our soul loves. In Jesus name. Amen.
