Focus During the Holidays

Posted by Lori Merrill on 12/16/2019

This is the time of year that I could (and I’m sure I have), get so caught up in my to-do list that I rarely look beyond myself. There are gifts to buy, food to prepare and parties to attend and host. It’s easy for me to get distracted by the festivities and to forget what this time of the year is about, and WHO I’m celebrating. So to keep my mind focused I am trying to focus my prayers in this way: 

  • when I wake, my prayer is to thank God for the gift of His Son. 
  • as I buy and wrap gifts I’m praising God for that person’s salvation or praying for them to draw close to God.
  • I’m asking God to make me sensitive to those around me:
    • those who are lonely
    • those who are grieving
    • those that need extra prayers.

And for all those around me this month—that my husband and I would be the Light that person needs.

Maybe you can join me on this journey through December. We can pray for each other...leave a 🙏and I’ll pray for you too! 

If you want help in 2020 to focus your prayer life or to learn more about prayer then order any of our books, prayer cards or devotional!
