The holidays have officially arrived. Thanksgiving was the initiation of the fun so it has all only just begun.
The holidays can be a very stressful time with family, friends, finances, and just the fear of having to deal with where you really are in life. It can get pretty real, real quick. Its easy during the holidays to allow the spirit of comparison to come on you as you see others happy and enjoying their life to the fullest.
I have 5 prayers to help you make it through the holidays. These prayers can be recited or you can use them as a diving board for your own personal time with God.
He doesn’t want to see you depressed, sad, upset, or lonely which could result in you making decisions this holiday season that you may regret.
We understand the enemy has come to steal, kill, and destroy us, but we are victorious in Christ Jesus. May these prayers bring hope to you as you go into one of the busiest times of the year.
Prayer for Financial Wisdom on Spending
Father, I thank you that your Word says if any man is lacking wisdom to ask of you and you will grant it to them. Father I am asking you for wisdom and self control this holiday season in the area of my finances.
I declare that I will have more than enough to help others, but will also have the wisdom to know when to stop. Thank you for the ability to manage my money well so I go into the 2016 year financially prepared to take my finances to the next level.
Prayer for Healthy Eating
Father, I thank you that your Word says to taste and see that the Lord is good. I know this holiday season there will be many opportunities to over-indulge in food; but Lord, I am asking you for self control that I do not overeat which could cause regret later.
I agree that you have called me to take care of my body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Be my strength this Holiday season to know when enough is enough.
Prayer for Quality Time With Loved Ones
Father, I thank you that your Word says how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity. I am asking you this holiday season to protect my family from any demonic attacks from the enemy that could cause any type of division.
