Father God, thank You for the start of this new month! Lord, for those of us in the North, help us to endure winter. Thank You that the sun is rise earlier and staying light later. Thank You Lord that Spring always follows every winter season, literally and figuratively.
Thank You Lord for this reader. Lord God, I do not know what all has happened in the past month for this reader; however, I ask for Your grace and mercy. For those who made New Year’s Resolutions or spiritual goals, help us to embrace the monotony of consistency. Help us to be diligent in reaching the goals that we have set.
Lord God, I ask that You remind us that You call us to love our fellow man, not just people who we agree with politically. Lord God, help us to rise above political parties and to live in and for Your Kingdom, bringing You glory. Help us Lord to listen, help us to have compassion. Lord God, Your Word says that we should be known for our love, we want and desire to live this command. May we desire and manifest the fruit of Your Spirit; rather than desiring and craving the lies of comfort, ease and excess that this world hurls at us.
Lord God, this life is not easy. Thank You Jesus for knowing, understanding and overcoming our weaknesses. Thank You Triune God for our salvation. As this world gets ever darker, help us to live more and more connected to You and Your Truth.
Thank You Father for never abandoning us. May we grow more in our devotion and application to You and Your Word in this new month. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.
