A New Year Prayer for You

Heavenly Father, I come to You
In the precious name of Jesus
To pray on behalf of my brothers and sisters
Who need You as another new year shines upon us.

Father, it is my prayer for 2007 that
My readers will prosper, be in good health, even as their souls prosper,
And be especially sensitive to Your voice
As Your encouraging Word fulfils and satisfies their hunger.

I ask today that Your Word and Your Will
Be prominent in the lives of every boy and girl,
So that they can be used by You in a way
That will make You clear and visible to this dying world.

We have been translated from the power of darkness
Into Your marvelous light.
Therefore, Father, keep us mindful through this new year
To do all things decent and in order in Your sight.

Thank you for the unlimited opportunities before us
That we have to raise and praise Your Holy Name,
And for grace and Your Son Jesus
So that we can effectively teach others to do the same.

I lift up this prayer Father, in the name of Jesus,
Whose I am and whom I serve, Amen.

KWJ commentary: I love you all very much and thank you for your continued support of the Give God the Glory! series of books and devotionals. Keep me in your prayers in 2007 as the book series expands into the Walmart chain (Eastern region) this month and internationally through key relationships that come my way. Together, let’s continue to Give God the Glory!
