For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor,
Prince of Peace
(Isaiah 9:6, ESV).

Pray for all the others who have been sick. Some are home, but others or not.
PRAYER FOCUS: Pray for those who will be traveling to be with family members for the holidays. This year, traveling may be mor difficult because of the cold weather that is covering much of our country.
