Praying through Matthew 2:6

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the truths that it contains. Thank You for this Gospel of Matthew and the wonderful way that he uses the prophetic Scriptures to demonstrate that Christ, Who is declared the eternal Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, is the Son of Man according to the flesh - through Whom all the families of the earth may be blessed by faith in His sacrificial death and glorious Resurrection. To Him be all praise and glory, honour and might, majesty, dominion and power, for ever and ever. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.”
(Matthew 2:6)

Praying through Matthew 2:11

Heavenly Father, thank You for the lovely picture of these wise men, seeking Jesus and finding Him to be the heavenly Prophet, Priest, and King, about Whom the Scriptures wrote. Thank You that I have also been guided to worship at His feet. Thank You for the sacrifice of His perfect life in payment for my sins. I do not have wonderful gifts such as gold, frankincense, and myrrh, with which to honour Him. But it is with humility of heart and grateful thanks that I offer myself as a living sacrifice, fully devoted to my Saviour. I pray that I will have an opportunity to bear the good news of salvation to others, to the praise of my God and Saviour. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.”
(Matthew 2:11)
