Prayer for Reflection


Here we are on the first Sunday of a new year. For many, a new year means a fresh start. We may have made promises or resolutions for [2023], or perhaps we are hoping to break some bad habits. Maybe we’ll succeed, maybe we’ll fail.

Let us be reminded that we are here to worship a God who always makes good on His word. In Jesus Christ, God has promised us renewal, freedom from the hold of sin and eternal salvation. Stand with me as we read God’s word together:

All of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ
with a resounding “Yes!”
And through Christ,
our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.

He has anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us,
and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit,
guaranteeing what is to come. Amen!
