Gifts from the Tree of Life: A Christmas List of Answered Prayer
Here is a unique way to celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas by “unwrapping” gifts of answered prayer that are already under the Tree of Life as gifts from God to you.
This Christmas season, I decided to create a list of all the answered prayers I have received. The list is enormous. Rather than listing the things or listing the things I need to ask God for this year, I decided to open the gifts under the Tree of Life. Each one, he already gave me, one by one. These gifts He also gives to you. So.. Won’t you open your gifts, one everyday over the 12 days of Christmas?
The 12 days of Christmas begins on December 14th which happens to be my birthday, and ends on December 25th Christmas Day, with the celebration of Christ our King. Celebrate and praise God with me, this moment and each of the 12 days of Christmas. You will see you are blessed; your prayers have been answered. This is the season of deliverance and healing.

Forgive our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For thine is the Kingdom and the Glory, forever..AMEN.

To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, to Him be the Glory and dominion forever and ever…AMEN. Rev 1:5NKJV.
We are kind and compassionate to each other, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32.

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at you right hand, but it shall not come near you. Psalms 91:5-7 NKJV. He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge.
8. The gift of Peace:
And the Angel said unto them, fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great Joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. Glory to GOD in the highest, and on earth Peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:10-14.

To us a child is born! You were once in the darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of Light. Ephesians 5:8 NIV. GOD is Light; in Him there is no darkness. 1 John 1:5.
11. The gift of Life:
I am still here! Miracles happen! Give Ear and come to me, that your soul may live. Isaiah 55. Speak life and Heal. 2:Kings 4.
12. But most of all these gifts that I opened….I have the gift of Love which Heals all things:
Love always protects
Love always trusts
Love always Hopes
Love always perseveres
And now these remain: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.
