A New Year’s Prayer

Lord, as a new year begins, we come to You and ask for Your blessing. We pray that you would give us joy to fill our days, peace to fill our hearts, and love to fill our lives. Thank You for the plans You have for us in this new year. We wait in anticipation to see all You will do! Thanking God for you and praying your new year is blessed in every way.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Can it really be 2017? Yes! 2016 is past, and we look forward to journeying another year with our Lord Jesus. What an exciting & wonderful privilege we have been given.

As each of us reflect back on 2016, may we be thankful for the many experiences and insights our Loving Lord has given us. Some have been pleasant – while others not so pleasant. Hopefully, each of life’s experiences in 2016 have helped us realize, even more, that each year of life is an amazing journey of Grace!

I hope that – in our looking back on 2016 – we all take time to focus on the Faithfulness of our God – that His loving mercies and provision were new every morning – matching our greatest needs.

With 2017 in clearer focus, we are reminded that our loving and caring Lord Jesus will always be with us, and that HIS GRACE will be sufficient for anything we face in 2017.

We have a sure HOPE in our Lord Jesus. None of us knows what 2016 will bring – but we are anchored in Jesus – who is our strength and life and sure hope of eternity.

Please allow the powerful words of Isaac Watts’ great hymn “O God Our Help In Ages Past” remind you of our Triune God’s great love and grace to each of us in 2017.

O God, our help in ages past,

our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

and our eternal home.

Under the shadow of thy throne,

still may we dwell secure;

Sufficient is thine arm alone, and our defense is sure.

Before the hills in order stood, or earth received her frame,

From everlasting, thou art God,

to endless years the same.

O God, our help in ages past,

our hope for years to come;

Be thou our guide while life shall last,

and our eternal home.

     You are dearly loved – and deeply appreciated

~ Pastor David & Jonnie ~
