Prayer for Luke 2:40

“The boy grew up and became strong, filled with wisdom, and God's grace was on Him.”

Heavenly Father, I scarce can comprehend that God the Son would lay aside His heavenly glory and be willing to come to earth... be born as a little baby and live a perfect life, so that He could die a sacrificial death for the sin of the world. Thank You for His wonderful example of obedience to You and thank You that He demonstrated to us how to live a life that was totally dependent on You. I pray that like the Lord Jesus, I would grow in grace and increase in wisdom and understanding, for Your praise and glory. Thank You for His wonderful demonstration of how each of us should live. I pray that I would learn to say, without hesitation... Thy will not mine be done in all things  - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
