Christmas

"She will bear a son and you  are to name Him Jesus
because he will save His people from their sins." Matt 1:21

Father,

Jesus, the Shepherd
Of the sin-exiled,
Of the sin-captive,
Of the sin-bonded,
Has come to us as a Babe --

"Majesty and splendor surround him,
Power and beauty are in his sanctuary."
Psalm 96:6

Jesus, the Shepherd King
Liberates us from
Pride's prison,
Lust's chains,
Money's slavery,
Has come to us as a Babe --

"Majesty and splendor surround him,
Power and beauty are in his sanctuary."
Psalm 96:6

Jesus, the Shepherd Son,
The Wonder of You, Father,
The Deed-Son, the Grace-Power,
With You, the True God,
Who alone fills the God-Hole,
Not the god's of the secular,
Idols, powerless, nothing,
They only cage and fetter, while
Jesus Delivers,
Has come to us as a Babe --

"Majesty and splendor surround him,
Power and beauty are in his sanctuary."
Psalm 96:6

Father,

From this prodigal child,
I simply say this Christmas:
"Thank You
For the GIFT of Jesus."

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
