While putting away the things of 2018, we look for a new hope in the coming year. There is something wonderful about the ability to start with a clean slate. That is one of God’s greatest promises to us…that we get to start with a new life through Jesus Christ.
Prayer Time: New Hope
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we look to the things of the past year, help us to focus on the promise of the future. Help us to see you as the God of hope and teach us to rely on You for our strength.
Lord, help us to see that even though there may have been struggles in the past year, the new year can be a time of new hope. Help us to see that, through You, we can have a new hope in our lives. As the new year begins, Lord, may we all learn to trust more in Your will.
As this new year begins, help us to grow in our understanding of Your Love for us. Guide us to having a closer relationship with You as each day of the year passes. Teach us to put our hope in You alone and to trust that our salvation comes through Your Son, Jesus Christ.
Although, we are not worthy of Your love for us, give us a peace that through Jesus Christ that we have salvation. This salvation is your perfect gift to us and all we must do is receive it in our hearts.
Thank you, Lord for this new hope and for the promise of eternal life and salvation that You give to us through Your Son.
In these things we humbly pray,
