Lord Jesus, master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas. We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light. To you we say, “Come Lord Jesus!”
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!
The New Living Translation
