Lord, I give thanks for all that You’ve done in 2023. The prayers that have been answered with “yes”, and even those with answers of “wait, and even “no.” I look to this new year with great hope.
In all things, help me fix my hope on You this year. You have promised that hope in You will never disappoint. Teach me to hope for what I do not see and to wait for it with patience.
Give me strength to persevere, courage to pursue Your plan for my life, and peace in knowing that You are always with me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
