Prayer of Consecration – 7 Jan 2024

Heavenly Father, we greet You this new year. We look back on the past year, and we acknowledge that You alone are God: Holy. Sovereign. Powerful. Compassionate. Good. 

We come to You this new year, entirely and utterly in need of Your grace: For our sins this year, grant forgiveness. For our sorrows, grant mercy. For our success, grant courage. 

For our obedience this year, grant Fatherly love. For the plans of Satan against us, grant the overcoming blood of Jesus. For the flourishing of this church and those around us, grant Your Spirit. 

For our discipline this year, be gentle. For our earnest seeking of You, be unrelenting. For our worship, be a mighty flame upon our hearts. 

Loving Father, we commit our plans and our hopes into Your sufficient hands. We submit ourselves, our church, our families, our communities, our city, and the nations, before You. 

Have Your most excellent way. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen!
