But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Pray with me...
Father it's the beginning of another new year. Already one week has passed us by. Even as the holiday season quiets down and we come back to a "routine", Lord quiet our soul. Let your peace reign and flood us. Forgive us when we have left you last on the "to do" list. We acknowledge that your Word is True. Yes, you are a rewarder of those who diligently seek you. Those who carefully & attentively search your word. The Bible has the truth and instructions for our lives. We read how you care for the fatherless and the widow. We read how you shut the lions mouth and preserve your people. We study and see how lives are transformed when one encounters your presence. We see ground becoming holy and a
bush ignited but not consumed. We comprehend that you call men out of troubled
situations and deliver them even if the "impossible waters" have to be parted. Those that are willing you transform, you change men's hearts. Like the potter on the wheel, you can take a piece of clay and make something beautiful. Glory to your Name oh Lord! You take what's barren and bring life. You examine the hearts of men and cause their pride to be exposed. You take the humble and raise them up. You fill the hungry soul with goodness. Lord, we understand that you stepped down from glory so we would know you. We understand that a great debt had to be paid for us and that Jesus paid for that which we could not. Your Word is filled with mysteries that we don't always understand. We pray that your Spirit would teach us and give us wisdom and revelation. Help us to be sincere in our search and study of your Word. Lord we pray for a refreshing to come to us, that our soul would be reignited by the Fire of God. We know you will return. We know that every knee will bow in your presence. We know that no one is good except for you. You have taken our sin stained lives, redeemed, cleansed us and have given us purpose. We search diligently Lord and know that no reward compares to knowing you!
Please feel free to reply with our own prayer for the new year.....
