Coming Lord Jesus,
We thank you for the promise of your coming. We praise you for the words that you spoke through the prophets, promising that you would come to be our Immanuel - "God with us". And we celebrate this Christmas season because you keep your promises. We celebrate with joy because you came to earth, you humbled yourself, you - the Creator of mankind - became a man. Jesus, the perfect son of God, you took on our sin so that we, who are sinful, can take on your righteousness. We celebrate your coming, for your coming is to us our joy, our hope, and our righteousness.
Lord Jesus, prepare our hearts for Christmas. Fill our homes with joy. Fill our churches with celebration. Fill our lives with you. We long with expectation for Christmas morning because it reminds that you, our God, keep your promises.
So we pray as you taught us to pray, "Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!"
In the name of Jesus who came and is coming again, AMEN!
