Get ready for the New Year!
May the Lord help us to anticipate the events to come instead of things catching us off guard. We can’t have all the answers, but we can be more solid spiritually.
Next year will be a year full of new challenges and opportunities. Get closer to God and be ready, come what may.
The abundant grace and blessings of Christ to you.
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
NEW YEAR’S REFLECTION AND PRAYER
As the old year ends and a new one begins, take time.
Time to remember the struggles you faced, and mistakes you might have made, and maybe even loved ones you lost.
In every year, you experience heartache. This one was no different.
And in remembering, find a seed of hope hidden in yesterday.
Remember how you’ve been blessed. Re-live when you found unexpected strength. Recall where you saw God’s great Spirit at work, and know his mercy kept you going all this time.
Recognize his mercy. Ask for his peace.
The peace that pours out every moment of every day from the wounds of Christ.
Prepare us Lord for the New Year. Lift us up and place in our hearts a renewed desire to know and worship you more.
Give us your abundant grace. Shower us with your healing love.
May your eternal Kingdom reign in our hearts and our lives. May the New Year show us once again your eternal mercy and glory.
And let us sing your praises with great joy.
In Jesus name,
