Matthew 2:1-2

PRAYER

Matthew 2:1-2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea…Magi from the east came to Jerusalem  2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”

PRAYER:

Lord Jesus, how your earthly parents must have marveled at these strangers that traveled a great distance to see you and worship you!  By their visit, these Gentile Wise Men showed us that you are not only a Savior of your own people (the Jews), but you are the Savior of Jew and Gentile alike.  You are the Savior of all nations!  So, like the Wise Men, I worship you, thanking you for humbly coming to this earth, living a perfect life in my place, and dying on the cross for my sins.  I worship you for the blessings this brings into my life – peace, joy, hope, and comfort.  Help me each day to worship you in my thoughts, words, and actions, as I thank you that you are my Savior and the Savior of all people.  Amen.
