Please pray for our friends in South Asia who are more free to do outreaches telling the story of Jesus this month in their different communities. Here is one in Hyderabad where Ruth invited the children in the neighborhood to see a drama about Christmas in her backyard. Many children may have heard this story for the first time ever. Similar events will be taking place all over South Asia i n the next few weeks. Let’s pray for hearts to be open to Jesus!
Read Luke 2:8-14 NIV
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
