Scripture Reading • Luke 2:8–20

~ Suggested Prayer ~

“Father God, we praise you for the ultimate gift of love in your Son. What a marvelous light of hope you have given to our dark world. We thank you for fulfilling your law perfectly in Jesus Christ when not one of us could. We confess that we cannot save ourselves, and we are grateful for the good news of salvation in Christ alone. Please embolden us with the Holy Spirit like Elizabeth, Simeon, and the shepherds to bear witness to Jesus.
It is in his name and for his sake that we pray, Amen.”

— Colton Tatham
