New Year's Prayer

I am a creature of habit.

I don't make New Year's Resolutions...

When I was a young teen I chose this song as my New Year's prayer.

I enjoy reading over the words and seeing how the Lord has worked in my life over the past year, and I pray that He continues to work in me to change me and make me more like His Son over the next year.

So, you may have read it last year,

and you may read it next year... =0]

but I find this hymn to be very compelling.

May the mind of Christ my Savior, live in me from day to day
by His love and power controlling all I do and say.

May the Word of God dwell richly in my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph only through His power.

May the peace of God my Father rule my life in everything,
that I may be calm to comfort the sick and sorrowing.

May the love of Jesus fill me as the waters fill the sea,
Him exalting, self abasing, this is victory.

May I run the race before me strong and brave to face the foe,
looking only unto Jesus as I onward go.

May His beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win,
and may they forget the channel, seeing only Him.

Happy New Year's friends! I pray that 2011 will be a year in which you grow closer to the Lord and enjoy your walk with Him in a fuller way!
