Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:5 NKJV
Most High Sovereign God, I love You and I thank You and give You praise. I bow my heart humbly before You this morning and lift up prayers for myself as well as for my brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank You for the promise of newness after this life is finished and all evil has been destroyed once and for all. As we enter this new calendar year I ask that You will make our relationships with You new and fresh. Open our spiritual eyes and ears in new ways and help us to see You at work in our lives, in the lives of those around us, and in the things of this world. Help remind us everyday that You are in control of everything and that nothing happens without Your hand and without Your approval. Remind all of us who are believers and sealed with Your Holy Spirit that we are Your beloved children through Christ. Please shine the warmth and light of Your glorious face upon each and every one of us and pour out upon us Your affection and goodness that we may be renewed, refreshed, and rejuvenated by experiencing Your goodness and lovingkindness for us. Please help us to be attentive to others around us and to their needs that we may be Christ to them and give us courage and boldness to approach and share the good news of Christ with unbelievers as well. I adore You and worship You Lord. You alone are worthy of all glory and honor and praise! I pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ who is my Savior and King; AMEN!
