During our hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, what are you wishing for? A new sweater, that bagless vaccum, a new car, diamond earrings. Maybe you are simpler and just want a job. I don't have anything on my list this year. My list consists of lists for others. Even in these tight times, I'd like to make Christmas special for my boys, but that is not something I pray for each night. At night I pray for something different.
When you pray at night who do you think of? Do you think of just your family or do you pray from a list? Do you remember each and everyone, or do you remember the faces? I admit when there are times I don't remember a name, but just a face or a request for a prayer. I know that it is okay if I say a prayer for a face, God knows who we are talking about. This Christmas, I am asking you to say an extra prayer, a special prayer for these children, because for them, the norm is they are in need of all our prayers.
That love weighs more than gold!
