Father God, the world has changed so much, and we are aware that You see it, and we trust You will have mercy on us as we go through these changes. Our hearts are asking for mercy and grace to continue for those who love You. Thank You for this opportunity to be in Your loving embrace. We are so grateful, and we love You because You are our God, our Father, and our Savior. This year guide and lead us through all that comes into our lives. Thank You for all Your provision, protection, and everything You have done for us this past year. Holy Spirit, help us to remember that Jesus is the reason we are still in God’s care, and that You are always with us through-out this year and always and forever, AMEN.
