Christmas can be a time of happiness and joy, surrounded by friends and family. For some, it can also be a time of sadness and feeling lonely. Make a commitment to reach out and share the friendship and peace of the season. This poem may help to adjust our attitude. If you are sad, accept the glad tidings, and then pass it on yourself.

PRAYER FOR DECEMBER

        You’re never alone

        But if you find at times

        that you’re feeling lonely

        Listen to the laughter of small children

        welcoming the first flakes

        of winter’s white

        to the rain rattling the downspout

        punctuating the thunder dance

        of spring’s morning storms

        to the beat of your heart

        jogging the memories

        of summer’s deep heat

        to the stir of the brisk wind

        strumming the dry leaves

        of autumn’s retreat.

        For when you hear

        the silence in those songs

        You’ll know

        I, too, am with you.

                                      --J.R. Rink

DAYS OF PRAYER FOR OUR NEW PRESIDENT

Day Twenty-Seven:  December 1, 2008

50 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes left until inauguration day.

        For creativity and thoughtfulness as plans are made for the Inauguration on Jan. 20, 2009:

        “But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.”  --Isaiah 32:8.

O Mighty and Awesome God, You are the God of the past, present and future, and You see all of time and history in perfect harmony. You are kind and gracious as You guide us in our ways.

As members of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies work with members of the new President’s Inaugural Committee to plan for Inauguration Day, may they be guided by You in all their choices. I pray for a good day, characterized by prayer and faith in You. I pray that plans will glorify and honor You in all ways that this new administration may begin on sound footing, honoring You in all things.

In Your name, amen.
