Prayer in 2021
If you’re like most, you are glad that 2020 is gone. Although as of right now, not much has changed, it’s good to know that 2020 is in the rear-view mirror. I think it’s safe to say that we’re all looking forward to new dreams fulfilled in 2021.
What are your goals this year? Are you craving new and fresh ideas for yourself or your family? During January, many people have New Year’s resolutions on their minds. One of the most common resolutions is to become healthier. Everyone wants to be healthy, whether it is mentally or physically. It is no secret that there are many positive benefits of becoming a healthier person.
Everyone’s goals of becoming healthier are different, but I’ve compiled a list of simple advice to get you started.
Keep your sleep schedule
Go over your to-do-list daily
Never skip breakfast
Keep track of what you eat and drink
Set clear goals
Find a support system
This advice is great and will produce great results, but let’s not forget to include the most important part – prayer. Should we ask the Lord to help us every day of 2021? Yes! Psalm 121:1-2 says, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” If the Lord who made heaven and earth is willing to help us, then why wouldn’t we go to Him? Shouldn’t going to God every day be our primary goal?
I wake up in the mornings and make sure I spend time talking with God. I know without a shadow of a doubt that my day will recklessly go wrong without God’s help. The Lord is my help in the new year. He is my hope and joy. He is the one who will guide me through the year. Whether I have good days or bad days, the Lord will always be with me. He will never leave me alone, stranded on an island where there is no help.
Just like our children look to us as parents for their shelter, food, clothing, and a safe place, our Lord is there for us. Trust in Him this year. Set new goals, but make sure to include God in your plans.
Happy New Year!
