Lord, with each unfolding day of this glorious new year you’re allowing us to live, may we stay ever close to you. May we start each day with words of worship on our lips and end each day with thanks in our hearts.
Help us remember that you long to be our companion and friend for each step of our daily journeys. May we look to you for all that we need, whether protection and provision, forgiveness and love, wisdom and guidance, courage and strength, or inspiration and encouragement. May we always remember that you are the source of all things good.
Father, whatever this year may bring, whether good times or bad, may we trust you completely and conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of you. May you shine through us in such a way that we provide a winsome witness to those who don’t know you and a source of encouragement to those who do.
Father, we humbly ask for your blessings this year. Please show us your love in amazing ways, especially when we’re hurting, and be our strong support and supply for each task you have for us to do.
Help us, O Lord, to seek you and follow you and always give you the glory for any accomplishment or good thing that comes our way. May our lives ever glorify you!
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
