I’ve decided to share with you some encouragement to start the year. I’ve entitled this How to start a new year right.
Today's will be about prayer. The fact is prayer is our communion with God.
What is communion you ask? It is association or fellowship. “Communion is God's communication to us coupled with our response to him — all in such a way that he's glorified and we're glad.1”
We don’t need to go too far to see how to pray as Jesus gives us the perfect examples. Don’t over think prayer. It’s like talking to a loved one BUT with fear and trembling. Don’t be intimidated to ask God for anything. Future decisions, struggles or sickness. The devil wants to discourage you from getting close with the power God has given us.
I love you all. Don’t forget every blessing and transformation with God.
Start the day off with the simple prayer Jesus gave us -
“He said to them, “When you pray, say: “ ‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation. ’ ””
Luke 11:2-4 NIV
