“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear,” says Buddy the Elf. And the best way to keep your spirit cheerful is to pray often and listen to God.
No matter what someone says to you today—or who the difficult family member is that you have to see in a few days—the situation will be made better by prayer.
Making prayer an integral and disciplined part of my life is the single greatest turn in my attitude that I have ever experienced. It gives me perspective—forcing me to discern God’s viewpoint on whatever I am dealing with.
Smiling may be Buddy the Elf’s favorite, but praying has become mine.
Jesus gives life through prayer. It's God's vehicle for speaking to us, and for us to enter into conversation with Him.
I feel empty without prayer. It centers me, and grounds me—it gives me heaven’s viewpoint.
Are you praying enough today? Who else can you be praying for? And how can you make prayer an integral part of your family's life this Christmas season?
Pray in all things today—yep, you guessed it, St. Paul said that.
