How I thank You Lord, for the wonderful gift of life that You gave me. What a privilege to be born into this world and to be given life. Thank You for all my family, my parents and children and all the friends that I have come to love over the years, many of whom are with You now in glory. Thank You for Your many mercies and blessings that are new every morning. How great is Your faithfulness to those that love You.
Thank You most of all, for sending Your precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to come to earth as a little baby, so that He could live His life as an example to us all on how to live a life that is pleasing to You. But I thank You especially Lord, that He came as my Saviour, who laid down His life for me, and became the finished sacrifice for the sin of the whole world, which He paid for in full with His own life-blood. Oh Lord, thank You.
Lord, as I face another year, I ask that You would be with me to lead and guide. Give me the strength and wisdom I need as I pass through the inevitable challenges that this year will bring. And I pray that day be day, You would draw me ever closer into Your loving arms, so that I may know You more and love You better. In Jesus' name I pray,
