Seriously? Praying in the New Year with Santa ClausE?

Movie . . . The Santa ClausE

  • Tim Allen gets into trouble because of the fine print on the Santa Clause business card.
    • In scripture there is no “fine print” because God Himself says that when we seek Him, He will let Himself be found.
    • We don’t have to “hunt” for Him and “hope” that we will find Him. We are assured that we will find Him.

Read Today’s Verse

Jeremiah 29:13 (NASB) You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart

Background for Today’s Prayer:

As we start the new year, are you committed to seeking Him?

  • Often we do not seek Him because we fear where He may lead
  • Dr. Charles F. Stanley, recalling his days at seminary, talks about friends of his who would not go to Missions Conferences because they feared God would call them to go over seas and become missionaries.
  • Do not let fear keep you from beginning this year by seeking Him . . . with, I might add, your whole heart.


Lord, so many verses talk about seeking You. Forgive us Lord for not regularly seeking You. Your word promises that when we seek You we will find You, just like it says about wisdom, that if we seek wisdom, we will find it (Proverbs 8:17 and James 1:5). Lord we pray that this year will be a year where we seek You with all our heart and watch You bless us by opening Your word to us. Forgive us Lord when we let our wants and our fears get between us and seeking You.
