Let’s welcome 2018 with an expectant heart

In a few hours time, 2017 ends and 2018 begins. I just want to fill this post with prayers to bless you and me for the coming year of 2018.

Dear Daddy God,

Today is the day of thanksgiving, when all of us, Your beautiful creation, looked back and give thanks to You IN EVERYTHING that have happened in our lives be it the good or even the bad.

Father, firstly, I thank You for Your amazing unending love for us and because of Your love, You have shown us Your beautiful grace and undeserving mercy. We love You too because You first loved us and have proven Your love for us by simply sending Jesus down to earth for us. As Jesus is, so are we in this world. As Jesus is righteous, so are we in this world. As Jesus is faithful to You, so are we faithful to You. As Jesus is without blemishes, so are we in this world. As Jesus is whole and healthy, so are we in this world. As Jesus is being Your beloved son, so are we, Your beloved sons and daughters in this world.

Father, I pray that despite of the current situation we are at, even the struggles that some of us are going through, I pray that You will only show us more of Your grace and kindness in our lives, supplying all our needs according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Help us guard our heart, so we only look at Jesus perfect sacrifice that He bore for us at the cross that NOTHING SHALL BE AGAINST US. I pray that we can always remember to declare that Jesus had taken all our sufferings and pain in every single day of our lives, that we shall not lose hope and lose our heart to the evil one.

Father, I pray that not only 2018 will be the best year for us, it will also be a year full of thanksgiving in every single moment of our lives to You, for You have given us this precious life on earth to experience joy and even pain that are all part of Your plan for us. For we know that Your will and ways are the best. Only You know what is best for us and You did everything out of love.

Father, I pray for the pastors and ministries out there for I am really thankful for them. They have been a blessing to many people including myself. I pray that You can continue to support them, bless them and their loved ones and I am sure they will bring more blessings to even more people in 2018 and in years to come.

Father, I also will like to pray for the people who have been sharing their personal testimonies for I am thankful because those testimonies have been a really great blessing and encouragement to me in not to lose hope. Give them more of Your blessings and favors in their life because I am sure those blessings will also spread throughout those non-believer around them.

Father, I declare that NO WEAPON FORMED SHALL BE AGAINST US, NOT EVEN EVIL WHISPERERS, that Your blessings will always manifest in us, that everything we touch will prosper, that Your favors are always upon us, that we can always thank You for whatever goodness happens as it is never a coincident but it is from You, God. I declare that You Our God will always stand by us and never fail to rescue us in our deepest sorrow, that You will shine Your Light in our darkest hour, that You will keep holding our hands like a little child and never let go, keeping us safe by Your side, always.

Thank you, Daddy, for all these, I pray in Jesus loving name, Amen.

I want to end this post by sharing a morning prayer I kept close to my heart that I learnt from Dr Charles Stanley’s sermon 🙂 It is indeed a powerful prayer that helps me go through my day with a smile before i sleep. I hope it can be a blessing to you too, for I always believe good things are meant to be shared amongst one another 🙂

Happy new year! Have a blessed 2018. May grace and peace be with you wherever you go 🙂

God loves you, so very much..
