“Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host!
Praise him sun and moon;
Praise him, all you shining stars! Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!” – Psalm 148:1-4
The festival of Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great pomp & show. 2000 years back Jesus was born as Good-News to mankind. The main purpose of his birth into the world is to wipe away the sins of all, to give peace and everlasting life to his people whom he loves so much. The angel of Lord appeared to Joseph and said “She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, for he will, save his people from their sins” (Mathew 1:21).
Today Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts and seeking place to be born. If our doors are closed with worldly celebrations, then it is sure that we have no knowledge of the “Holy Bible”. This is possible only if we hear his word and treasure them in our hearts like Mother Mary. “But Mary treasured all the words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
In the old testament God has spoken about his mercy to Abraham, Moses and many other prophets. “Because the Lord your God is merciful God. He will neither abandon you nor destroy you, he will not forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them” ( Deut 4:31). Now at end times God is speaking about his mercy through his son Jesus. Jesus is a merciful God. His love for humankind is so much that he wishes no one should escape from his merciful love. Jesus never desires to punish sinners, but he is willing to heal them through his mercy. “He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)
Oh Lord you are my master,
Unless you build me, I will not grow better,
You are my future holder,
Take my responsibilities on your shoulder.
I can't do anything without you,
Weak and feeble I am on my own.
On you do I lean forever and ever.
Never cast me down and hold me when I stumble.
You are the root of all wisdom and Master of this creation,
You know the beginning and the end,
You know us better than we know ourselves.
Jesus please have control on our lives.
He is able and for him nothing is impossible,
Let us not be rigid and depend on our failing strength,
But let's be humble and offer our life into his hands.
For Jesus is our Creator and Father of all universe.

Lord you’re the wisdom,
I seek you more than a gold or silver,
Remain in me forever,
This is my prayer O Lord Jesus.
Abba Father my God,
By your wisdom you created this world,
Remain in me O my creator,
Your value is much more than precious of precious stones.
Your knowledge surpasses everything,
Who are we before your throne of insight,
O Lord fill me with your spirit of light and knowledge,
You be my guide and every time and everywhere instruct me.
Glory be to you O Jehovah forever,
For always being gracious on us all,
Take delight in us O Heavenly Father,
That in your wisdom we may grow wilder.
