Only a Prayer Away

December 11th, 2012 Posted in sermons

We bought a nativity set this year. It’s the kind that lights up and goes on your front lawn.
People walk by and stare at it with a look that says, “Who are these mysterious people, and where’s Santa?”

My granddaughter Allie likes to hug it.

I read the story of a man who had a nativity scene on his front lawn, and vandals stole the figure of the
Baby Jesus.

The man was distraught, and was quoted in the newspaper, saying, “They have taken my Jesus and I
don’t know where he is!” Sometimes people are like that with the real Jesus.
Thankfully,He can’t be stolen.
He’s only a prayer away.

No, for the most part, you will not find Him in the so-called “Christmas season.”

You need to tune out the noise, the busyness, and the hype and simply “Be still.”

    Please pray for my husband Homer’s salvation and that it is Gods Will (even though Homer is not a believer) to restore our 20 year marriage and that Homer will come back home to his family. I am in obedience in God’s Word & ask that you please pray with me: Colossians 1:20, Romans 12: 1-2 & Ezekiel 36:26. In Jesus’s Precious Name, Amen and thank you! I will update a Praise Report!
