Merry Christmas from beautiful Colorado! Like many others, I love this time of year – the cold, snowy weather and the bright, crisp air add to the joy of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. As we reflect on His incarnation, I pray you and your loved ones make some wonderful Christmas memories and draw ever closer to our Lord.
This special time of year always brings to mind the lengths to which our Savior went to secure an eternal relationship with us. Scripture reminds us again and again that God desires to interact with us on a personal basis – and that He remains ready and willing to respond to our petitions. As Dr. Bruce Wilkinson comments in the foreword of my book Certain Peace in Uncertain Times, “…God wants to hear from you – your praises, your confessions, your innermost thoughts, your urgent requests. He is waiting for you to open your heart to His love and leading – and He’s poised to answer your prayers in ways you’ve never before imagined (Ephesians 3:20).”
I’ve personally witnessed many incredible answers to individual and corporate prayer during my tenure. And I am extremely thankful for your role as part of the faithful network of saints who are committed to praying for God's hand of blessing and protection upon our nation. Though we are undoubtedly living in tumultuous times, a ready store of grace and mercy flows from above when we lift our voices before the Lord’s throne.
As we strive to further the cause of prayer, we are thankful for the many ways in which God has provided for our ministry and allowed us to expand our efforts. As we rejoice in what has been accomplished and look expectantly to the future, may I ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with us financially in this ministry to our nation? Your tax-deductible donation would be greatly appreciated at this crucial time.
Thank you for your devotion to prayer for this ministry and our great land – you are impacting eternity! May this year’s commemoration of Christ’s birth fill your heart and home with great joy and the “peace that passes all understanding.” God’s abundant blessings to you!
