      This new year, the Lord has put Psalm 90:12 heavily on my heart: “Teach us to number our days aright, that we might gain a heart of wisdom.”

      My prayer is that God will give me and my family wisdom on how to prioritize our time each day this year. I pray that He gives me wisdom to know how to pursue things that have an eternal significance, rather than wasting time on things that are not worthwhile (Facebook, worrying, endless cleaning).

      It’s much easier for me pursue the latter, unfortunately. However, by God’s grace and the reminder of this verse, I pray that He teaches me to number my days aright!

      A great prayer, Hannah. Thanks for your encouraging comments. I think we can all relate to the need for wisdom. It’s what I pray for daily!

      Rebecca, my word for this year is HOPE! God also led me to Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.” My prayer is…
      Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You with great HOPE and expectation that You will speak to my heart. I will be still and hear You. Knowing that You are my loving Father God, I will pour my heart out to You, I will praise You, O Lord, and thank You and worship my Creator for all that You are and for sending Your Beloved Son, my Lord Jesus Christ to save me! And I will listen in obedience as You call me to serve You! Send Your Holy Spirit Lord to strengthen me along my journey with You and to You! “May You, my God of Hope, fill me with all joy and peace as I trust in You, so that I may overflow with hope by the Power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13) In Jesus’ Name. Amen

      “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee.

      Great prayer. Thanks, Mary!

      Love that Scripture too, Kris! Thanks for stopping by!

      My Bible verse for the new year is Romans 12:1-2
      “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in vew of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will.’
      My prayer is that I will allow God to transform me into His image. Help us all to realize that worship is not just on Sunday and Wednesday but we are to live a lifestyle of service worship.
      Have a blessed day!
