Happy New Year!January 4, 2010
Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. Galatians 6:9
I’m dedicating the month of January to prayer and fasting as we seek God about the next steps for the church and our personal lives. God has some significant things up ahead. Let’s increase our Word intake and sensitize ourselves to the Holy Spirit so we’ll be ready to walk out His plan in 2010.
Here are the five points we are continuing to pray. They make a great New Year’s resolution list!
1. Pray for the removal of obstacles.
2. Pray for the increase of love.
3. Pray for personal growth.
4. Pray for the 100% will of God.
5. Pray with the end in mind.
Don’t let the devil steal your joy this New Year. If you’ve let your love toward God grow cold, meditate on God’s great love for you, on His promises for your life found in the Word. “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things” (Philippians 4:8).
