Father God, we come to You as our Father in Heaven, and honor You as the only Father of all. In the beginning You, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit created the heaven and the earth, and all glory, power, honor be unto You and the Trinity. Thank You, that You took a withered people and made them whole as You sent Your Son Jesus to be born through a young virgin in Bethlehem. Down through the years You have proved this to generations after generations that Your hand did this for Your chosen people who are called by Your Name. Help us to respond to our Savior in a special way this season and through the New Year. Help us to stretch forth our hands to all who are in need this season. Help us to preach and teach that Jesus is the reason for the season, and for all eternity. Bless our withered lives to become whole in Jesus. AMEN.
