My Father in heaven, Keeper of time, let the days stretching out before me bring glory to Your Name. Filter my moments through Your fingertips of grace. Instruct me in the way that I should go. Cover my plans with Your hands, shaping them until they mold to Your will. Reveal to me that which I must lay upon the altar in the year ahead. I resolutely want to follow You more closely, Jesus. I resolutely want to be fully devoted to Your truth. I fall before Your majesty, seeking forgiveness and needing Your grace. Lift me up, Lord, as only You can. Grant me the higher perspective which will reveal to me the path to the promised land which I am destined for. My time is in Your hands. My days are my offering to my King. Under the Word of truth in Psalm 31:15 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
My times are in your hand;
rescue me from the hand of my enemies
and from my persecutors!
Psalm 31:15, ESV
