Unto Us Came the Prince of Peace and The Triumphant King: My Monday Prayer
Unto Us Came the Prince of Peace
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
If Jesus is who He says He is,
If Jesus can do all He said He can do,
If Jesus can be all He has promised to be,
If Jesus will come like He said He would come,
If Jesus loves you like He said He loves you,
You have no reason to worry or fear,
and every reason to be at rest and live in His peace.
His name shall be called…Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Unto Us Came the Triumphant King
Praise is the heart’s celebration of the victory that Jesus Christ has won. He faced Satan and defeated him, He faced temptation and resisted it, He faced suffering and overcame it, He faced death and defeated it, and He faced the grave and triumphed over it.
Once Jesus was wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manager—now He is seated on a throne. Once rulers rejected him—now He is at His Father’s right hand. Once He was despised and rejected—now He is exalted and glorified. Once He was the suffering servant—now He is the triumphant King.
Jesus Christ is the only one worthy of all praise. There is no name that is higher than His, there is no throne that is greater than His, and there is no kingdom that is mightier than His. He is worthy because His righteousness is indisputable, His redemptive work is irrefutable, His glory is incomparable, and His majesty is undeniable.
My Monday Prayer
Lord, as I learn to abide with You in Your love, help me to lay down my fears and to dwell in Your rest and live in Your peace. Teach me to live like this daily—not just in the Christmas season, where celebrations may distract and distort my spiritual vision. I want to love You and live with You every moment of every day.
I adore you as my Prince of Peace, I come under Your authority as the King of all Kings—You are worthy of my love, my adoration, my submission. Equip me to abide with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
