“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12 NKJV)
“Pray without ceasing.”(1 Thessalonians 5:17 NKJV)
“Bear one another’s burdens.” (Galatians 6:2 NKJV)
Not sure what to do with those Christmas cards after the holidays? A friend of mine shared her family tradition a few years ago. I love it!
Put the Christmas cards your family received in a special place that you can revisit throughout the year. Pull one out of the stack each week. Make that family your prayer focus. Pray together for that family.
This makes giving and getting them an even greater blessing all around that lasts for the whole year! Kind of like the baby in a Manger!
A note from Tammy… HAPPIEST 2022!
I enCOURAGE you not to throw your cards away! Pray without ceasing for your focus families. I am going to text my focus family at the beginning of the week and see if they have any needs.
I suggest recording their requests on the back of the card, if possible, and note when the prayers are answered. Not only will we “keep the love going, ” The cards will provide a great prayer focus and we will have a record of the goodness of God at the end of the year. I so love this idea. What a way to start the New Year!
Please know you can text or email me anytime. I am always willing to go to Father God on your behalf.
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you [is] faithful, who also will do [it.]. Amen.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 NKJV)
