Prayer Day 31
Dear Heavenly Father,
” As we have reached the last day of 2016 we pray we have pleased you this past month as we have prayed daily with one another for ourselves and those around us. We ask to continue to bless us in 2017 as you have in 2016. Thank you for drawing us all together to pray for the future in serving you, Lord. Help us remember all the verses we read this past month, the prayers we prayed, and the lessons we learned. We pray 2017 makes us better and stronger at serving you in all things. Most importantly, Lord, we all pray to gain the courage to talk about you to those who are lost and don’t recognize you and your ways. Father, we know it is one of the biggest challenges to talk to those who deny you, but we still pray we can get through to them. In all things, let us have a good heart and mind.
As we set our goals for 2017, help us to pray about them all and talk to you first, not last. Help us remember Proverbs 11:27,” If your goals are good, you will be respected, but if you are looking for trouble, that is what you will get.” Let us remember we need to do all things for the good and to please you, Lord. We ask forgiveness for when we plan in deceit and anger as we know that doesn’t please you and your ways. Help us all plan 2017 in love and positivity with your ways in mind. Lord, please place your hand on all of us in comfort and wisdom as we enter 2017 to live our life as a reflection of you.”
In all these things we pray and ask in your name, Amen.
We have successfully finished our month long daily prayer challenge for 2017! Congrats- you’re on your way to a great 2017 as the Lord will bless you.
