8 Prayers Reflecting Gifts Given to Us Through the Birth of Jesus

There’s an age old saying “’Tis better to give than receive.” Yes, indeed this is true. However, I’m not sure that there is any greater gift that can be given than one that was given to us 2000 years ago – the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

We know through the prophet Isaiah, in Chapter 9, that God in his infinite power, mercy, and benevolence would deliver us a messenger to bring His word to life. With the birth of Jesus, we were given infinite and priceless gifts. To help you step into a place of humbleness and gratitude this Christmas season, we’ve given you prayers to reflect this.
