The Christmas season is in full swing and it is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. However, it is important to take time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ. This can definitely be a hard concept for children to grasp especially with the anticipation of Santa Claus. But that just makes it so much more important to talk to children about what the true reason for the season is! A great way to do this is through prayer. Taking a few minutes each day to pray with your children will help put the importance of the holiday season into focus. Here are a few verses from the Bible that can help guide your family’s prayer time:

Verse of Loves

Mark 13:34: “I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.”

John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”

Romans 5:18: “But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.”

Verse of Peace

Isaiah 26:3: “With firm purpose you maintain peace; in peace, because of our trust in you.”

Luke 2:14: “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Mark 1:1-3: The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ [the Son of God]. The Preaching of John the Baptist. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you; he will prepare your way. A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.’”

Verse of Life

John 6:51: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”

Matthew 10:39: “Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

John 3:36: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him.”
