What do I want for Christmas? I’ll bet you thought it’s that yacht, didn’t you? Naw that’s crazy, but in the event you’ve got an extra one, please send to……
What do I really want? Well, it’s easy, you can afford it, and you don’t even need to wrap it! “What could it be?” I’m sure you’re wondering… Well, okay, you may not care, I’ll learn to cope with that therapeutically later… I’ve got something rather important to ask of you this Christmas holiday…
So What do I want for Christmas from you?
So here we are, another Holiday season…
Without getting involved here, about whether or not it’s right or wrong to celebrate Christmas, as it seems to be turning into something that reminds me of the pre/post/mid/none, trib rapture debate, there is something that we should all be able to agree on…
December 24th/25th was and is a pagan holiday from a long time before the birth of Christ. Therefore, whether we celebrate the holiday or not, we need to keep mindful of the works being done by the enemy because of that fact.
Prayers against the plans of the enemy
The same demonic forces that we Christians pray against on Halloween, are just as at play on other holidays, and Christmas is no exception. So if you’re sitting at the table ready to say grace, throw up some battle prayers to supplement your saying grace.
Pray Against Depression
And without a doubt, the spirit of depression runs rampant all over the world around Christmas time. Due to lost loved ones, financial difficulty, complex situations, or whatever the reason, depression works much harder on people this time of year, so stay mindful of that in your prayers as well.
Pray for the protection of the Saints
Saints around the world are being persecuted, even unto death. There’s no bad time to lift up our Brothers and Sisters in the Lord in all prayers and supplication. Christmas may be an important time to do so because of the spiritual activity involved against the Body of Christ. Funny people forget that there’s an enemy out there that is alive and well, even on Christmas.The whole Body needs to be uplifted and protected by the Father.
Prayers for Travel Mercies
Most people have somewhere to go this time of year, and I’m sure you’ve already witnessed some beauties behind the wheel, doing crazy things or just simply being dangerous on the road. The Kingdom of Darkness will not be shy to use any opportunity to ruin someone’s life, least of all yours. Be awake and alert spiritually as well as physically. People are driving drunk much more than you’d think…
However the Lord Leads
Ask the Father if there’s anything that he’s like for you to cover or bring up. Since when is that a bad idea? Then when you feel an unction by the Holy Ghost, just pray it out.
So please stay mindful of all of these things this Christmas, and actually the entire holiday season. Satan knows his time grows shorter every passing year, so let’s not be slack in our stand against him, nor grow sluggish in our prayers for the Saints, our families, and ourselves and lastly our stuff, as our stuff is often what’s used against us in one way or another.
So there you have it… Paint it red, wrap it in a bow, and call it a present!
