New Year, New Heart

Dear God: It's a new year! Thank you for fresh opportunities to live for you and others. In Psalm 65:11, I read "You crown the year with a bountiful harvest." May your incredible blessing be with me in 2016. Please use me to share your love with a hurting world. 

Remind me each day to spend time with you in prayer – to learn your will. I know that life will be much better with prayer as an ongoing part of my walk with you. Put a "new song in my mouth." Let me praise you daily with a grateful heart for all your mercies. Lord Jesus, I want a new heart, filled with gratitude for the gift of salvation. 

Also give me a new spirit that is positive and uplifting to others and a testament to you. I look forward to the day when you create a new heaven and a new earth. Father, may this be the year. 

Please come and walk with me. Amen!
