May God fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. May you live a life worthy of the Lord that you may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work.
I pray that your life will make a contribution to the lives of those around you. May you influence others by your words and actions in ways that bring glory to your Lord. May honesty and integrity and faithfulness to God be your guidelines for interacting with others. I pray that you show patience, kindness and self-control with those closest to you and to strangers you meet. May you always extend mercy because mercy is what God extends to you each moment of each day.
I pray you grow in the knowledge of God, and are strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience. May you joyfully give thanks to the Father. God has done so much for you. He has qualified us to share in blessings and goodness forever and ever. He has set you apart for a specific plan and purpose. May you hear his voice and trust him and follow his instructions that you may experience every blessing and remain in his will throughout your life.
May God bring people in your life that will strengthen your faith and increase your love for Christ. May God watch over you and protect you from harm and temptation. God has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. May you live each day with this ever present in your mind, heart, spirit and soul.
May this prayer be my guide this year, in word and deed, in spirit, and thought. Amen. selahV
