Our Triune God, we know that it was Your enabling grace and power that carried us through 2020. We know that Your ultimate purposes are being fulfilled. Thank you.
As we look ahead to 2021, we know that YOU are greater than whatever we may face, and we are eternally safe as we trust in You. Please continue to fill us with a desire to faithfully follow after You, more than any other thing; any other person.
We thank you for Your Presence which goes with us and that this joyful knowledge is never dependent on circumstances, but Christ in us, our true and lasting strength and hope.
Please give us Your peace to lead us. Please give us Your grace and loving kindness to cover us to overflowing, so that we may extend it to others.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord,
