January 5

Personal Prayer
Praise God for his unswerving faithfulness in keeping all his promises and never forsaking his own. Give thanks that God gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in him should have everlasting life. Confess any unfaithfulness on your part to God. Commit yourself to being faithful to all your loved ones and to keeping all the promises you have made to them. Ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit and to give you the confidence that you are a member of his family and know God as “Abba Father.”

For Your Family and Friends
Support family members and friends in their work or studies and pray that each may be diligent in pursuit of God-given tasks.

For the Church
Pray for your church’s missionaries (by name, if possible), asking the Lord to encourage and strengthen them and to keep them from loneliness, discouragement, spiritual attack, and burnout.

For the Kingdom
Pray for your denomination’s world mission efforts as missionaries are recruited, trained, sent out, and supported. Pray for adequate funds to carry on and expand the work.

For People to Know Jesus
Pray that unsaved persons who hear the Word of God will receive it and accept it not as the word of human beings, but as it truly is, the Word of God (1 Thess. 2:13).
