Emmanuel God with Us

Matthew 1:20-23
But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
Father God, Thank you for choosing to be our Emmanuel. From the beginning You promised Moses, Joshua and so many in the Old Testament that You would be with them and never leave them, and then one day You came to earth as a baby born of Mary in Bethlehem wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.  You continue to be with us.  Jesus, we praise the name of our Savior and Redeemer.  We pray that Salvation will come to France this Christmas season because they will believe in Emmanuel.  We pray in the name of Jesus our Savior.  Amen
