Rev. Paul's Inspirational Message
"A Prayer for the New Year"
Happy New Year Family!!! I know I share the sentiments of many when I say I am overwhelmingly glad to see the arrival of 2021. We need a new year and a new opportunity for the blessings of peace and joy to fill our lives. A new year represents an opportunity to make changes in your life that can redirect your trajectory and get you on a Godward path. 

In this new year, I want to offer a prayer for each one who is reading this message. I am praying for peace, power, and protection for you in this new year. God has faithfully protected you through the year that has passed, in spite of all of the challenges and adversities you may have experienced. God has brought you to the threshold of a New Year and another opportunity to get it right! God has provided for you and made a way when it seemed that no way could be made. As a result of God’s provisions, you are standing on the precipice of what I pray will be a “Year of New Life” for you. There will be challenges, but I pray the blessings and lessons far outweigh the adversities and challenges.

So, as we prepare to receive the new year, let’s pray:
Most gracious and loving God, I thank you for the blessings you have showered upon us this past year. I thank you for keeping us in the midst of pain, pandemic, and paranoia. You have been a gracious God in a pestilence. For all who have experienced loss during 2020, I pray for comfort. For all who are sick, I pray for healing. For all who are hurting emotionally, physically, and financially, I pray that you would bring them complete wholeness. For you are the God of the second, third, and fourth chance, and you never fail. So, today I ask for phenomenal favor and supernatural blessings for the one who reads this message, and I pray that 2021 will be their best year yet. Do it God, for your servants. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

God bless you. I love you, and I pray you will be comforted by the words that God spoke through the prophet Jeremiah, “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

In love, peace, and joy,

Rev. Paul
