Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit, please bless all Thy children in the coming year.
Fill us with rivers of peace and hope from the eternal springs of heaven.
Scatter all our fears and anxieties to the four winds and whisper a song of assurance deep
in our hearts that all will be well.
Lord, draw us closer to Thy heart. Let the light within us not be darkness.
Fill us with a holy passion for Thy word and help us to hide it daily in our hearts that we might not be deceived by false teachings.
Good Shepherd Jesus, teach us to distinguish Thy voice above all the voices that daily compete for our attention; all the false voices that pretend to represent You; Lord give us great powers of holy discernment.
Precious Lord, help us to always abide in You, to learn to pray without ceasing, to give thanks in all circumstances, and to rejoice always.
Help us to never give up, no matter what challenge may come our way, knowing that You are always with us and will never leave or forsake us.
Lord, help us to remember that You are the Eternal Light and that no darkness has ever or can ever overcome You, and that as long as we abide in You, no darkness can ever overpower us either.
Thank You, Lord. I love You. In Jesus Name. Amen.
John 1:4-5 (Christ) was the source of life, and that life was the light for humanity. The light shines in the dark, and the dark has never extinguished it.
