A New Year Prayer

Lord Jesus, reveal yourself to me as Savior from sin, Lord of life and King of all (Colossians 1:15-20). Peel back the layers of darkness and doubt that cover my soul, that choke my joy and ceases my passions for You (John 10:10). Draw my gaze to that which is ultimate – Your glory (Psalm 27:4)! And cause me to see & savor, trust & treasure Christ (Psalm 34:18)! Open the eyes of my heart (Ephesians 1:15-20). Help me to look differently and discern life from an eternal perspective (Matthew 6:33; Colossians 3:2). Turn my eyes and affections away from evil and turn me toward righteousness (Psalms 119:37). Move me to see beyond myself, to be a light unto a world in need of help and hope that comes when I live out your kingdom agenda of making disciples, loving my neighbors through tangible deeds and allowing Your Holy Spirit to empower me for Your kingdom work (Luke 10:27; John 9:4). This is my desire, this is my prayer. Amen.
