Dear Heavenly Father, as I enter a new year and another decade please guide every foot step that I take. Show me how to be a light to everyone that needs it while helping me to see things the way You do. In Zechariah 2:5 (AMP) You tell Jerusalem that you will protect them: “For I, declares the Lord, will be a wall of fire around her [protecting her from enemies], and I will be the glory in her midst.” Lord put that wall of fire around me, my family, and friends giving us your almighty protection. As this new year and decade begin help me to recognize those who are trying to deceive me (Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1 ESV) When presented with the many options that come my way show me Your ways so that I do not conform to this world (Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 ESV) Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. Psalm 86:11 ESV for you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me; Psalm 31:3 ESV Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Psalm 25:4-5 ESV Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me. Psalm 5:8 ESV In Jesus Name Amen
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father, please take this overwhelming weight from me please surround me with the wall of fire You talked about in Zechariah 2:5 And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst. Lord rebuke all of these attacks, doubts and fear. Hide me in the shadow of your wings Lord. Thank you for your protection and always putting up with me. In Jesus Name Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father, I know that in this year of upcoming change I will need that steadfast love; I am encouraged that in never ends. Every morning will be a new journey thank you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen
Dear Heavenly Father, You have told me to not to idolize the things of the past “Why were the former days better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this. Ecclesiastes 7:10 when I do this it says it is not from a place of wisdom it will be leaning on my own understanding. Instead you want me to place my faith in you know that: Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19 In Jesus Name Amen
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the mercy that You have shown me, I can only imagine Your all-encompassing love. I am going to give and share Your love with as many people as You put in my path. In Jesus Name Amen
Dear Heavenly Father, “And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you. Psalm 39:7 Just fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I will know every direction that You want me to go. Lord help me to hear and see when You are guiding my I place my whole life in Your hands. In Jesus Name Amen
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for being the ultimate Dad. You have said Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 Please be my light and guide in this New Year. Be with me like it says in Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. Lord protect me so I am not consumed. In Jesus Name Amen MORE……
Jesus gave us directions on how to pray:
Matthew 6:5-13 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
Pray without ceasing. You do not have to go into a long drawn out speech a simple thank you lord, help lord, or you are awesome lord will do. When you have more to ask just talk, he can hear you! When I talk to him I start with Dear Heavenly Father, Others use Father God, still others start by saying Jesus it does not matter how you start as long as you pray. While praying remember how would you talk to a friend; relaxed, with love, with respect? Remember he already knows what we need all we have to do is ask He want us to Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Believe that He will take care of you: James 1:5-6 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. It takes humility to ask for what we need, when we go in front of him with humility and respect he will be there with his arms wide open. Always remember to thank Him praise Him in everything In Jesus name Amen!

(Psalm 28) 7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
8 The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.(Psalm 31)20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them from
all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.(Psalm 32)6 Therefore let all the faithful pray to you while you may be
found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them.7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs
of deliverance.(Psalm 34)4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are
never covered with shame.6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.7 The angel of the Lord encamps around
those who fear him, and he delivers them. 9 Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

and who meditates on his law day and night.
