Day 15: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

God, while so many of us are working hard on New Year's Resolutions to lose weight and change the look of our bodies, help us to go even deeper and change our souls. 

For You say, “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come” (1 Tim. 4:8). 

Lord, I don't want to miss out on a deeper connection with You.  Change me. Teach me. Send me out to make a difference...  -In Jesus name, Amen

Day 14: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

Oh Lord I know there is so much more! I can get so focused on what needs to happen in my life plan over the next 5 years, that I loose sight of Your life plan for me, right now. That's all I have. Compared to the time we will spend with You in eternity, we are here on earth for mere moments. 

 

Lord, help me to see those moments as a gift, and an opportunity to serve you. Your word promises, "Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand." 

 

Father, help me today to shift my focus from accumulating a bunch of things to make my life more comfortable on earth, to instead bring as many as my friends and loved ones as possible with me to eternity. Let the joy of my new life spread like wildfire. -In Jesus' name, Amen.
