 a prayer for understanding this Christmas written in red
 1st Peter chapter 2 verses 2 through 3 say like newborn babies you must crave spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of Salvation tryout for the nourishment now that you have had a taste of the Lord's kindness
 holiday season brings an expectation of family friends and shared experiences which lead to happy memories and chairs tradition though this is true for so many of us it's not true for all of us holidays can a pressure to people who have not had the experience has many of us claim is normalcy for this time of the year in the versus above we are reminded of the importance of spiritual maturity as we throw up in my face that is faithful to provide wisdom and insight into each individual situation this is how we learn to see from his perspective family is important we are all purposely placed a purposeful God it's not always easy to find Embrace those people for multiple reasons we often have trouble connecting to each other if we consistently turn out words to see each other God will face lie allow us to see our families and friends as he does
 being a friend of the family of God is the precious gift we all get to embrace this holiday season no matter what I'm memories Traditions or expectations are being God's children is an awesome reality we are all welcome to receive through Christ Jesus let us pray for the spiritual maturity to turn to him and grow up in his truth and wisdom
 father we know you place people around us purposefully but we don't always like those people and they are not always the ones we want to spend time with please help us to see them through your eyes father are those who have difficult family Dynamics can you reach in as only you can and he'll odd angles men old conflicts can you blanket families and forgiveness and compassion so they can enjoy each other's company this holiday season and Beyond other for those of us who do not have family around for the holidays can you reach down and comfort and help us to reach out to the community you have surrounded us with give us the courage to connect and share our time and our holidays with those you have Paisley place around us
 Lords of our phones with piece this season and always take out their families who have been separated by conflict and years of unforgiveness and bitterness heels friendship which has been split apart by a misunderstanding and hurt heel and a miraculous way to God you can and we pray you are willing this holiday season to make it obvious the miracle healing is by Your Hand Works through us as you will father let us open our doors and set our tables in great expectation of the fellowship you will bless us with the season plus every meal and mealtime conversation help clarify miscommunication and motivate apologies father we pray miraculous reconciliation between families friend relationships this holiday season and every single movement of your Holy Spirit Upon Our Lives Springsteen Glory
 but it brings people to Believe In You Jesus help us set aside extra time to spend in prayer Worship in your word so our hearts are ready and prepared for every and all conversation an opportunity to love others in your name give us the spiritual maturity when he for all of us and to love you each other obediently and willingly in Jesus name we pray amen
