Thank you Father God for today. You’ve given us another day, another opportunity. Thank you for your new mercies and unmerited love and favor. Thank you for being present and in control. You are sovereign in our lives and in the life of our loved ones.
Today I pray for hope and strength for us all. I pray you help us through these trying times. 2020 has been an interesting year, many of us could not anticipate what was around the corner but you were well aware. Although we may not understand your will, we trust that ultimately your intentions are good. You are still God and you are still good.
I pray for the world and the state of our country. May you help us all proceed with wisdom and hope. Your word says that if we ask for wisdom you would not withhold, so I pray for increasing wisdom as the year progresses. I also pray for those who may be struggling with hope.
Your word says that hope is an anchor to our soul. Therefore I pray that everyone is filled with hope to see change and a brighter day. I pray that everyone who struggling with their day to day would have and find something to look forward to. May our hearts be freed from the contamination of cynicism or jadedness. I pray for us all to place our hope in you, even believing that you are an on time God.
Teach us how to walk and to use the time you have given us wisely. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
