Kingdom Prayer Focus
Lord, thank You for all that you've allowed into our lives this past year, even the hard things which have reminded us how much we need You. We pray for Your Spirit to lead us each step of this New Year as we rely on Your presence every single day. We ask that You guide our decisions and turn our hearts to desire You above all else. Please open doors that need to be opened and close the ones that need to be shut tight. We ask for help to pursue You first, above every dream and desire You’ve put within our hearts. We ask for Your wisdom, for Your strength and power to be constantly present within us. We pray You would make us strong and courageous for the road ahead. Give us discernment and insight to understand Your will, hear Your voice, and know Your ways. In Jesus Name, Amen
