I don’t know about you, but 2011 deserves a kick in the butt on it’s way out. It can’t leave soon enough for me. And despite the prospects for many trials already on the horizon for 2012 (especially in our election cycle and economy,) I have great optimism in the power of prayer and in the grace of God. Jesus Himself encouraged us to ASK God the Father for ANYTHING in His Name:
…but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete.
So this is what I ask Him for you in 2012:
I thank you for those who love You and love this country.
I ask that You give them peace this upcoming year. Not just calmness but COMPLETENESS, in their families, their finances and their physical health.
I ask that You give them Discernment to see what is REALLY going on in situations and storms they face, and Wisdom to know what to do about it.
I ask for the ability for them to Hear You clearly, and the grace to boldly and unhesitantly obey Your directives.
The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you;
The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you tranquility of heart and life continually.
And may the Lord Himself put His Name upon you and bless you.
Together this year with God’s grace, we will see the results of prayer for our kids and this country. Bless you all.
