A Prayer for the New Year

A Year of New Beginnings

As we begin this New Year, let’s do so with this prayer by the Apostle Paul–praying along with him that…

…the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know…

…what is the hope of His calling,
…what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and

…what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe,

…according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come (Ephesians 1:17-21).

May this be the year when we, as the Body of Christ, come to really know who we are in Him, so that we can walk in the Authority which Jesus Christ won back for us at the Cross, and live victoriously every day through the same Mighty Power of the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead!

Goodbye, 2022!

A New Year's Day Blessing

A New Year’s Day Blessing

As this most welcome of New Years begins to open up before us, it is my prayer that this will prove to be a year of healing, hope, and blessing for us all.  And to help us usher it in properly, here is a blessing from Psalm 67 of God’s Word…

God be merciful to us and bless us,
And cause His face to shine upon us,
That Your way may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations.
Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy!
For You shall judge the people righteously,
And govern the nations on earth.
Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Then the earth shall yield her increase;
God, our own God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us,
And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.

And, during the course of this year, may we see God arise and His enemies be scattered, as justice returns once again to the nations of the earth!
