We thank You that You make all things new. Thank You for all that You've allowed into our lives this past year, the blessings along with the challenges, which have reminded us how much we need You and rely on Your presence filling us every single day. “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22-23
We pray to love You, our Lord and our God with all our hearts and with all our souls and with all our strength and with all our minds and to Love our neighbors as ourselves. Luke 10:27
We pray for your Spirit to lead us each step of this New Year. We pray that You will guide our decisions. We ask that You open doors for us to have a permanent home. “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Is. 43:18-19
We pray to trust in You for all things: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Prov. 3:5-6
We pray for a hedge of protection over our school, families, and friends. We pray the blood of Jesus over any strongholds, snares, schemes and traps of temptations from the enemy.
We pray for energy and endurance to pray and persevere to build Your school for Your glory.
We confess our need for You and ask for Your forgiveness for the sin of self-sufficiency. "I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them..." Ez. 11:19
May we be lovers of truth and may the fruits of Your spirit be evident in our lives - your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22)
We ask that you make all things new, in our hearts, in our minds, in our lives, for this coming year. “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead.” Phil. 3:13
We thank You: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Lord, we pray for peace and patience as we persevere. “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Is. 40:31
We pray that You will give us the desires of our hearts as we seek You first in all that we say and do. “May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” Ps. 20:4
To You be glory and honor, in this New Year, and forever.
In Jesus name, Amen.
