A New Year's Resolution Prayer

Ask God to bring genuine life change to you and your family. Ask him for the grace to make the difficult decisions day after day, decisions to honor him and serve him with all of your heart. This resolution isn't for a new year, but for a new life. If we are to live unto God and not ourselves, we must resolve daily (a daily resolution) to "take up our cross and follow him..." This radical commitment to God will look like greater patience and understanding toward your family, an eagerness to forgive others for hurting you, a desire to say I'm sorry when you're wrong or have hurt someone, meeting needs through compassionate action, etc. Thank you, Lord, for hearing the cry of our hearts!
