Prayer for the New Year

Happy New Years! Will and I started off 2012 in prayer with our beloved church. I wanted to share my key verses for this year from Matthew 6:20-21 and Matthew 6:33

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:20-21

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Matthew 6:33


Reflecting on this past year, I have just been so blessed by God in so many ways. Although I don't want to take any of God's gracious and abundant gifts to me for granted, I pray that I won't become preoccupied with gifts and forget the giver. I want my heart to be more focused on everlasting heavenly treasures and trust in God to provide for all of my true needs rather than all of my fleeting wants. I know that with such a prayer there will probably be many challenges and struggles ahead, but I am grateful that Will and I have each other for support, accountability, and encouragement and ultimately, "...we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
