A Prayer for You...

Today, I simply want to share prayer with you.  As we embark upon a new year in just a couple of days, there are many people who are excited and ready to leave all their baggage behind and start fresh; however, there are those whose hurt and pain has been so severe this year, and they feel that there is no way to simply let it go and move forward.  While many are rejoicing as the clock strikes midnight, some will be crying and yet hurting, weighed down by the pain of their past.  Here's my prayer for you:

Lord, today I pray for those who have experienced severe pain in 2010.  Maybe they've lost a loved one; lost their job or home; their marriage ended in divorce;  they received a serious diagnosis that threatens to take their life; or maybe they just can't seem to win for losing.  I send a word of healing and peace to every person reading this that may be experiencing pain caused by the situations of life.  I ask that you would give them comfort, and let them know that you feel their pain, and are able to heal every hurt.  Help them to believe that although this year has been rough, the upcoming year has the potential to be their best year yet.  Remind them of your faithfulness, and the fact that all things work together for good to them that love you and are called according to your purpose, and that you have great purpose for their lives.  Help them to realize that with each new day comes a new beginning.  I ask that you would help them to embrace their new beginning, and give them the strength to let go of the pain of their past and move forward in you.  I pray that you'd give them a testimony of your goodness, your mercy, and your great grace.  Work in their lives according to your perfect will.  In Jesus' name, amen.

God has the power to make all things new.  Trust Him to heal you hurt, renew your mind, and give you peace that surpasses all understanding.  Make steps towards moving forward so that 2011 will be a better year for you.

Til we meet, laugh, love!

Peace & Blessings,
