PRAYERS FOR THE YEAR AHEAD
Song: Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
Bless the Lord for all that He has done since the year began to date. Thank Him for His faithfulness throughout despite all the problems and challenges that we have had to pass through till date. Appreciate the Lord for He has been good and His mercies have been plenteous towards us.
Let’s pray for increased manifestation of God’s goodness and lovingkindness towards us as we come to the end of the year. As it is written “….for better is the end of a thing than the beginning” Decree that the end of year 2018 shall be much better for us than the beginning. Pray that the Lord will crown the year for us and cause our paths, as He orders our steps, to drop with fatness ( Ecc 7:8, Psalms 65:11)
Thank God for all the thoughts of peace and not of evil that He thinks towards us. Decree that that we have a glorious future and a bright hope for the year ahead. Ask the Lord to fill our hearts with expectations of a joyful and fulfilling year 2019. Pray that all our expectations according to the will of God will not be cut off. (Jer. 29:11, Prov 23:18)
Declare and decree that our hopes shall no longer be deferred and that every heart that has become sick because of deferred hopes are healed speedily. Declare our desires come to pass like a tree of life and our days shall no longer be prolonged neither shall our vision fail. Our days are at hand in 2019 and every of our vision shall come into effect. (Proverbs 13:12, Ezekiel 12:22-24)
Pray that our desire to reign with Christ and to grow and abound in all things, living free from fear, lack, sickness, oppression and depression be made manifest in the name of Jesus that in every month of the year 2019 these desires shall find bold and deliberate expressions in our life, families and the church in Jesus Name. Declare that our paths will be as the shining light, that shines more and more unto the perfect day. (Rev. 22:2, Proverbs 4:18)
Ask God to open our eyes to see that which will make for our peace and prosperity into the year 2019. Decree that secret things shall be revealed to us; things that eyes have not seen, that ears have not heard or that have never entered into the hearts of any man shall be revealed unto us by the Holy Spirit through different means, visions, dreams, inner witness etc. (Deuteronomy 29:29, Daniel 2:22, 1 Cor. 2:9,10)
Ask the Lord to deliver our souls from death, our eyes from tears, and our feet from falling all through year 2019. Decree that the foot of pride will not move against us, against the works of our hand nor against our families and that the hand of the wicked will not remove us in Jesus Name. Come against every plot and conspiracy of evil and wicked men that they make to cause us to stumble or fall, it shall return upon their own head. Decree that we shall not fail, falter, fall or be frustrated in 2019 (Psalms 116:8, Psalms 36:11)
Declare that there shall be no abandoned project in our lives. Pray that everything that our hands began to do shall be completed and will end on a glorious. Let us agree concerning the completion of our building project. Ask God to prosper us greatly and that our hearts will be moved to give towards the completion of the church building project. That we all shall have the heart and willingness to arise and build. Pray that many souls will be saved and established in the faith as we gather in our completed church auditorium in 2019. (Zechariah 4:6-9, Neh 2:20)
Thank God for the exceeding great and mighty things that He has ordained for our good in year 2019. Bless His name because we shall live and not die to witness and partake of these things in Jesus name.
