We do not know what the new year holds, but we know who holds the new year and so I ask Lord that we would put our faith and trust in you as we begin 2014. I ask that you would bless our friends and family. Give us a heart that is generous to others, may we use the gifts that you have given us for this purpose. May our lives bring you glory and may we nurture a thankful heart for all that you do for us each day. Forgive us for our sins and draw us closer to you as we enter the New Year together. In the precious name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
