Day 29: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

God, remind me today in the midst of feeling overwhelmed, overstressed, and over budget that You have a different type of life planned for me! 

For Jesus said, "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance to the full, till it overflows" (John 10:10 AMP). 

Okay, Lord, I'm ready for that overflowing! Change my perspective on my life! Instead of surrendering to the thief and feeling so empty over what I don't have, help me to feel fulfilled by what I do have. Your unconditional never-ending love, the promise of help in times of crisis, and the loved ones around me. Yes father, I see now, it's a good life!

Day 28: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

Father, while many of us have fallen short of our goals and resolutions for the New Year, remind us that You are the God of second chances!

Your love for us never changes.  Your grace for us never runs out. For Your word says, when we make a decision to believe in Jesus and accept Your forgiveness we have eternal life.

 "For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God" -(1 Peter 1:23).  

Yes, my new years resolution may have fallen short.  Father, remind us what the real goal is, spending eternal life with You.  -In Jesus' name, Amen
