Day 27: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

God, I don't want to be a survivalist anymore.  I don't want to live this year barely able to breathe from one crisis to another. Lord, I declare a new attitude.  I want to THRIVE! 

For Your word says, "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." (Jer. 29:11). 

No more expecting calamity God! Help me instead to look for and expect a hope-filled future!  For Your kind of hope isn't wishy-washy, it's a confident expectation of GOOD things from You God.  I can't wait to see what GOOD things we can accomplish together this year.  I can't wait. -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Day 26: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

God, not every day we live with You is the fairy tale.  So in those days when life feels like more of a nightmare remind us that we can "with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).  

Lord, I need You. Thank You for accepting me just the way I am...
