Prayer of Agreement
Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.
A Prayer For Advent (Part Two of Four)
Lord we come together humbly to the Lord of Glory and the Prince of Peace. Lord Jesus Christ, Creator, Author, and Redeemer, we pray that our few concentrated minutes consciously in Your presence would please you and humble us. We acknowledge you as Creator, who precedes and sustains everything as Visitor in Bethlehem who is truly worthy of our adoration - as Author of a new and eternal reality - as Redeemer who dies to make us whole. So, convince us that this Christmas news is the best news - that though You are high yet You are lowly - that though You are defined by eternity yet You are couched in humanity - that though You are cramped in obscurity yet Your glory is for all who have eyes to see. Convince us that our freedom is born in a stable and secured at the Cross - that our very life depends on You. Refresh our hearts in wonder and loose our tongues in songs of joy. We worship you afreshLord of Glory and Prince of Peace. In Your name we pray, amen, an so be it.
What is the meaning of "noel"?
In French, joyeux noel means “Merry Christmas.” Our modern English word comes from the Middle English nowel, which Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defined as “a shout of joy or Christmas song.” The roots of the word are the French noel (“Christmas season”), which may come from the Old French nael. This, in turn, is derived from the Latin natalis, meaning “birth.” Since Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ, it was natural for people to refer to the celebration as the “nativity” or the “birth.” Our English carol “The First Noel” was first published in 1823. The message of the song is the joyous pronouncement that the King of Israel has been born. When we sing the song or wish someone a joyous noel, we are following the example of the angels, announcing the good news that Jesus Christ was born, not just for Israel, but for all mankind, so we could receive forgiveness of sins through Him.
