Goodbye 2012. Hello 2013!

What better way to end one year and start another than with prayer?

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank you for 2012. Thank you for the hardships, persecutions, illnesses, and turmoil. Thank you for the tears, fears, heartaches, and headaches. Thank you for the good for you are good and bestow goodness on all. Thank you for the bad for you always make lemonade out of lemons. You work out everything for those who love you. No experience is a loss for you use all to work out for your purpose. Thank you, Lord, for 2012.

Lord Jesus, you are just awesome. Your love is indescribable. It is unconditional acceptance. The misfit belongs. The popular belongs. Your arms are open wide for everyone. The lonely never feels lonely or alone with you. You turn tears into joy. In your presence, there is peace, love, hope, joy, and comfort. Your healing is complete. You are just wonderful, the great counselor, and mighty God. I adore you, Lord.

Lord, there are many prophesies that 2013 is to be a year of restoration. Amen. Please let it be the year of restoration for everyone’s spiritual, emotional, mental or psychological, and physical health. Please mend broken families and broken hearts. Please draw people to yourself, dear Jesus, so their eyes can see the redemptive work you’ve finished more than two thousand years ago. This redemption provided complete and perfect healing of spirit, soul, and body.

Lord, please forgive your people’s trespasses. You know we are human and fallible. You know how limited and ignorant we really are. Please forgive our humanness and draw us back to you. For everyone who truly repents, please accept him and her with open arms. As you said in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Please listen to our prayers and fulfill your promises in our lives. Set us free from everything that entangles us. Protect us from our own stubbornness, conceit, and ignorance. Heal our spirit, Lord, so we can truly praise you as you deserve. Show us our purpose in life and enable us to live out our purpose. Please do your will in our lives and fulfill your dreams for our lives during our lifetime.

Lord, please heal your people emotionally and psychologically. Please love our hurts away. Enable us to forgive as easily as you forgive us. Renew our minds with your words. Speak to us, Lord. Tell us we are loved and cherished. Tell us that no matter what happens, you will always be with us and never forget us. Take away our insecurities, inferiorities, and everything that separates us from you no matter how daunting it is. You are able to do everything for nothing is impossible with you. Lord, enable us to see the problem in the proper perspective and that you are bigger than any problem. Please set the lonely in families. Take away the negative thoughts and feelings. Please replace sadness, depression, and hopelessness with your joy. You can take the ugly and make it beautiful. Please Lord, restore your people.

Lord, your people are physically ill and some are dying before their purpose on earth is done. Please heal your people of all of their ailments. Kindly do not allow excessive pain or unneeded sufferings to take place.  If there is a need for suffering, please let your grace abound. We do not deserve your mercy, forgiveness, nor healing, but for your name’s sake and for your precious blood’s sake listen to our prayers.  You paid the price of our healing at the cross a long time ago. Thank you.  

We wish to glorify you, Jesus, glorify you alone. You created this earth. You gave us our being. You should be the only one to reign over all of the earth. You should be our only Lord and Savior. So please be glorified for you said that you won’t give your glory to another in Isaiah 42:8. Please be glorified in your people in 2013. Thank you for reading this prayer. Thank you for you. I love you, Lord Jesus.
