“"You must put into the earth everything you take out and do it faithfully."”
Instead, I will ask that Your resolutions be mine.
Your path, my path. Your will, my will.
Let us walk headlong into this new year together.
Show me clearly the path Providence
is unfolding for me today.
Grant me the courage to walk it,
fearlessly as you want me to.
And I knew that could happen
to our world too —
This growing in
and emerging from
Darkness into Light
I don’t even want to recount
what has happened
in my life this year.
I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.
Lord Jesus, You only have us,
to stand in for You. Make ours Your healing touch. Make ours the words You’d speak.
Make our outreach to families and loved ones the comfort and hope You’d give.
Let us be Your love.
Heal those who are sick. Restore them to full health.
May I see clearly with the eye of my beating heart. May I have the wisdom to listen with special care. May my heart and mind be in tune to…
Her voice echoes from of old, beckoning me to be still.
At times when the way ahead,
or even the next step,
assure me that You know what is to come;
that You envision
a plan to prosper me and not to harm me,
to give me a future full of hope.
“We must pray: it is our food without which nourishment we perish.”
“If ... you are quite determined to belong entirely to God, to work with all your strength ... I say to you with assurance, Come.”
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
