Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.Philippians 4:6
Praying to the God of New Beginnings
What do you think of when you think of this coming year? Does it stress you out thinking of everything that you went through last year? Do you have anxiety, not knowing what the next year and the future will bring? More than anything, God wants a relationship with you this year. Not just the type of relationship that you only invest in once a week or just on holidays, but every moment of every day. God is a God who cares for His people. He loves them and listens to them. Just like a parent cares for a child and listens to their requests, no matter how crazy or bizarre they may seem. Parents make decisions for their children because they know what is best for them; God is the same way. He knows what is best for His children, and He can be trusted with our lives.
So this year, invest in your relationship with Him. Bring your requests before Him. Talk to Him daily in prayer, thanksgiving, and supplication. He will always answer. It may not always be the exact answer you want, but you can be sure that He will never leave you or forsake you.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me grow in my relationship with you. You are a caring and loving God. Thank you for always walking with me year after year. Amen.
