I wanted to share my prayer with you...
This last year, You have taught me many things. About myself, about You, and about who I am in You.
I know that at many points in my last year, I have hurt You. Caused You to grieve because of things I have done.
But You never once turned Your face from me.
God, You showed me Your unconditional love and everlasting forgiveness...when I was so unworthy of it.
I don't deserve to be looked upon with favor. But instead, You take me in Your hands and whisper in my ear, 'You are My Daughter'.
God, I dedicate this next year to You. Help me to put the past behind me...to forget what I have hurt You with...and to only look forward to how I can glorify You.
And if any of these evil thoughts begin to enter my mind, push them away...and remind me how wholely and forever I belong to You.
LORD, in this new year of life that You have granted me, I pray that You will guide me...direct me...chasten me...forgive me...love me...and continue to show Your sovereign, almighty power in my life.
May I only and forever be a shining testimony of who I am in You.
Take this new year of my life and do with it as You please.
I am Yours...
