Oh Lord, I pray that people will be attentive to Your promptings in life, and not give way to the evil one. Truly, Satan has a stronghold on people’s lives right now and even they can’t even see the deception that they are under. Even in this Christmas season does the devil try to lead people into believing in something else outside of Jesus. He has put Santa Claus as the center of attention during this time of year, making the story of Your birth, Jesus, not as important. If it was my wish, I would want anything that didn’t give You glory to be removed from Christmas. So, Lord, my prayer is that people will no longer teach their children to believe in Santa but to believe in You alone. Help them to remember that You came into the world to save them from their sins. Then will gratitude fill their hearts and minds until they really begin to praise You and not man. No person deserves to be looked at as knowing us when we sleep and seeing if we are good or bad, for only You can see this and not a figurative person. This is only idolatry and leading people on a path without You on it. So I pray that people’s eyes will be opened to Your truth and that people will change their wicked ways, starting today. May they give up believing in and teaching things that are not true to people and kids. Lying is serious in Your eyes and I pray that they will see this for themselves. I love You, Lord. I give You the glory and the praise. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (KJV)
19 Quench not the Spirit.
20 Despise not prophesyings.
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
Scramble the letters in Santa and what do you get? The answer is Satan. Isn’t that a coincidence.
Anybody who teaches their children about Santa Claus is not following Jesus. Those in Christ don’t teach lies to their kids.
