As we journey into a new year and a new decade I believe the prayer Moses prayed In Psalms 90 should be our prayer.
12 Help us to remember that our days are numbered,
and help us to interpret our lives correctly.
Set your wisdom deeply in our hearts
so that we may accept your correction.
13 Return to us again, O God!
How much longer will it take until you show us
your abundant compassion?
14 Let the sunrise of your love end our dark night.
Break through our clouded dawn again!
Only you can satisfy our hearts,
filling us with songs of joy to the end of our days.
15 We’ve been overwhelmed with grief;
come now and overwhelm us with gladness.
Replace our years of trouble with decades of delight.
16 Let us see your miracles again, and let the rising generation
see the glorious wonders you’re famous for.
17 O Lord our God, let your sweet beauty rest upon us
and give us favor.
Come work with us, and then our works will endure,
and give us success in all we do.
This is my desire for the upcoming years is from this Psalm.
- That I may interpret my life correctly and understand His plans for me
- That God will replace our years of trouble with decades of delight.
- That our children will see the miracles and the glorious wonders He is famous for, so they might know Him and believe.
- That God will work with us and give us success in all we do.
Do a brain dump-write down all your desires for the new decade, no matter what they are. Then prayerfully review your list and cross off any you feel that are not from God. As you delight in Him this month, thank Him for giving you the desire of your heart.
