January 2 Prayer
It is the second day after the first day of the new year.
We begin again and yet we are in the same season of winter.
What better time is there to spend in reflection and preparation for the spring to arrive.
The soil is beginning to soften from a few rains while the seeds lie beneath.
Here the words of our faithful saving God from Isaiah 45;
“I am the Lord and there is no other.
I created the heavens and the earth, put everything in place.
I made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos.
I publicly proclaim bold promises.
I, the Lord, speak only what is true and declare only what is right.”
As you look back to look forward, what are the questions that arise within you?
What place are you in now and where are you being asked to go?
Breathe in the name of Jesus.
Jesus, the holy name of Jesus.
The one who saves’
The anointed One has come to anoint you this day
with His presence, by His name, with the oil of His Holy Spirit.
“We proclaim Christ, crucified. Christ the power of God, the wisdom of God.”
“The Lord has made his salvation known, all the ends of the earth have seen it.
His justice, His Kindness, His faithfulness.”
This is where we may begin again.
Let him anoint you with His calling to remain in Him.
For God is with you, for you and dwells within you.
This is His creative work in you that calls you forth into the new.
Not of your own imagination but beyond what you have known.
What does love look like in 2021?
Begin to discover it within your very own self.
What do you want it to look like for you?
Be the person you have always wanted to have in your life.
The one you needed when you were younger.
You belong to Love and you are the beloved.
‘We breathe in your name, Jesus, the one who saves!’
