A Prayer for Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Eighth Day of Christmas

O God,

Your Book tells us that, in accordance with the law, Joseph and Mary had their son circumcised on the eighth day of his life and that on that day they officially gave him the name “Jesus” (Luke 2:21).

On this Eighth Day of Christmas, we praise you for his name that so well describes who he is and what he came to do: “The Lord Saves.”

When we get lost—when we wander away, when we try to find our way apart from you, when we forget who we are, when we forget whose we are—Jesus always comes after us to find us and to save us.

We thank you that he is still saving us from ourselves...
