STOP! In the name of love…
Why are you praying that the new year will usher in a new order of business in the world? Why are you filling up your calendar with new appointments that you hope will bring you different results than those appointments you engaged in during all those months in 2020? Why are you making new resolutions when more than half of the ones you made in 2020 are still not accomplished?
BAH!! HUMBUG!! BOLDER DASH!!
Now, let’s get real. Since your initial conversation/prayer is addressed to God, why not start off with a little praise and honor and thanksgiving. Why not solicit his plans for your life to come. Why not just be still for a moment and wait for him to acknowledge and examine your true heart desires.
Now, let’s start again…
|Dear Heavenly Father, on bended knee I come to your sacred throne of grace, sincerely inquiring if You will open the windows of heaven and give me a glimpse of any new beginnings you have assigned to this mere mortal for the coming new year that history will record as 2021. |
I am approaching Your throne of grace at this time so I can begin to examine my faith walk and repent of any and all disappointing thoughts and misdeeds that I might have committed against You.
For I truly want to faithfully and earnestly be a good steward over any and all assignments that You make me charge over. I also want You to know that I cherish all of the tasks and obligations that came my way in the past, and hope with all my heart that I was found trustworthy and true.
Just knowing that in all things accomplished, whether with or without divine understanding, You and You alone was pleased with my efforts would bring comfort to my soul. For I realize that You were with me then and that You will be with me in the year to come and that You will not fail me.
So, without any doubt or hesitation, I sing for joy and declare that I fully trust You with all of my tomorrows.
Amen and Amen!
SCRIPTURE LESSON: “You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! Psalm 139:5-6
