The Power of Christmas Prayer (HC)
1 in stock
In Stormie Omartian’s joyous tribute to the birth of Jesus, the events surrounding a baby born long ago in a stable come to life as a family Christmas devotional. Drawing from Old Testament prophecies and the New Testament accounts of Matthew and Luke, Stormie gives the age-old story of Christ’s birth a personal, down-to-earth flavor. With a poet’s touch, she deftly weaves interesting tidbits about the culture, geography, and government of the period into the storyline while giving readers an inviting glimpse of possible reactions, perceptions, and actions of each of the characters. At the end of each chapter, Stormie provides a prayer for a modern-day audience that powerfully connects readers to the heart of a loving and compassionate Savior. The result is a warm and wondrous retelling of the miraculous, 2000-year-old story that remains as tender and powerful as it was when the angel choir first sang it to an audience of humble shepherds. “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” A trade edition of The Child of the Promise with new material.
