"YOU ASKED FOR IT"

 
"What we have asked Him for is ours." —1 John 5:15
 

Tomorrow is the last day of the Christmas season. The Lord has surprised us once again by loving us more this Christmas than we ever dreamed possible. But it's not over yet. As great as Christmas has been, the Lord may well have been saving the best till last (see Jn 2:10). He will bring Christmas to a glorious conclusion, but we must ask to receive the fullness of His love (Mt 7:7).

"We have this confidence in God: that He hears us whenever we ask for anything according to His will. And since we know that He hears us whenever we ask, we know that what we have asked Him for is ours" (1 Jn 5:14-15).

Ask the Father for the repentance and salvation of every member of your family. Ask Jesus to increase in your life while you decrease (Jn 3:30). Ask to hear Jesus' voice and to be overjoyed in the hearing (Jn 3:29). Intercede for those in authority to lead godly lives and make decisions according to God's will (1 Tm 2:1). Pray with Jesus for all to be one as He and the Father are One (Jn 17:21). Most of all, pray for all "to be saved and come to know the truth" (1 Tm 2:4). We haven't yet opened up our best Christmas presents. Ask and open.

 
Prayer: Father, I ask for the Holy Spirit (Lk 11:13).
Promise: "No one can lay hold on anything unless it is given him from on high." —Jn 3:27
Praise: When St. Marguerite volunteered to go to New France (Canada), she was blessed with much hard work and bore much good fruit.
