Advent Devotional: Sunday, December 23

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (Acts 16:31)

Persecution, fatigue and frustration can all cause us to give up praying for unsaved loved ones as we once did. As many of us prepare to see family members during Christmas, may we have fresh confidence that God desires their salvation, and so be encouraged to carry them to the Lord in prayer again.

Father, Jesus taught us that we cannot come to Him unless You draw us. Once more we renew our prayer that you would move upon the hearts of those closest and dearest to us. God, draw them to Jesus by the working of Your mighty Holy Spirit!
