We have a wonderful opportunity as we face the New Year with its awesome prospective. New experiences await us. Let us submit to the constant ministry of transformation by the Holy Spirit that Christ may be magnified in our lives. Free from the strongholds of envy and jealousy let us walk together in harmony, united in prayer. As we pray for one another we are healed and restored to a spiritual tone of mind and heart.

Our Father, I delight myself in You, and thank You for another New Year. I let go of the past with its mistakes, hurts, and disappointments. I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in my heart, living within me, as I trust in Him. May my roots go down deep into the soil of Your marvelous love; and may I be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high Your love really is; and to experience this love for myself, though it is so great that I will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it. And so at last I will be filled up with God himself. Amen.
