Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.
Thank you for everything that you have given us this year! It was only fitting that the new year fell on a Sunday where we could start 2012 off by worshiping your Holy Name and taking communion in church this morning. You have bestowed so many blessings upon our family through restored health, new births, and much time spent with loved ones. I pray, as always, that you will give us the guidance to where our tithes should go, and give us many opportunities and resources to be able to help those who are less fortunate than us. I also pray that you will give us the patience, guidance, and strength to raise our two beautiful daughters up in your Holy name. Help us to teach them about you, and help us let them get to know you and your son Jesus. I pray that you will comfort those who are struggling emotionally, financially, or in health, and give them peace. Lastly, please be with our family and friends, and keep them safe and healthy. I ask these things in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
