Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to give You the glory that You deserve. Surely, Your birth was like no other on this earth, and we ought to be thinking of You and Your coming into the world at this time. The season that we are in is often replaced with Santa, and the gifts that we can receive, where our hearts should be turned to You. No person on earth can ever take Your place, oh Lord, and I pray that people will be reminded about this fact now. May people that say they believe in You also decide to put You first in their lives and give You the glory that You deserve. May they no longer teach their children to write letters to Santa, or to sit on his lap, in order to tell them what they want for Christmas. Help them understand the blasphemy in this, for they are replacing You with figurative and made-up people. Oh, how my heart is saddened just thinking of how You are being blasphemed in these things, and I pray that people will turn from their sins and come unto You fully, even this day. Then, will they begin to not only live their lives out for Your sake, but also teach their children to call upon Your Name in prayer and to read the Bible daily. There is wisdom found from seeking You and I pray that people will find the counsel they need for their lives in doing this. Then, will Your love start to flow from us and into other people's lives. You are our God and I love You. All the glory and praise to Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Don't replace Jesus with other things. Think upon Him and His birth in this Christmas season, while giving Him praise.
