A Prayer for the New Year

As we begin the New Year, my hope for you and I as ambassadors for Jesus Christ is that we seek to live out to the fullest the exhortations of the Apostle Paul and follow his example found in Colossians 1:9-12:

For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

My prayer is that we will:
1) Be constantly in prayer
2) Be filled with knowledge of His will
3) Walk in a manner worthy of the Lord
4) Bear fruit in every good work
5) Increase in the knowledge of God
6) Be strengthened with all power
7) Joyously give thanks

Happy New Year and may God bless us as we seek His face and proclaim His Kingdom!
