Diane: “I pray, for every single one of the readers, that God would be glorified in their lives. I pray they would seek the Lord God with all their hearts, minds, and souls and would walk in the way of the Lord. (Deut. 5:33; 6:5) I pray the Word of God would transform their minds so they will know what God’s will is for their lives. (Rom.12:2) I pray they would trust the Lord no matter how dark the circumstances, how hopeless the days may feel, or how scary the path God has sent you on may seem. (Ps.9:10;Prov.3:5-6) God is always by your side and He is ALWAYS working things for your good and His glory! I pray they would experience and know how merciful, loving, awesome and mighty is the Lord. (Ex.34:6;Deut.10:17) I pray that 2012 would be a year every reader draws closer to their Savior and reflects Christ more and more every day. Glory to God in the highest forever!”
Sarah: “Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for the changing seasons in the weather and in life. As we look back on the year we are ending, there is so much for which to be grateful. I thank You for this incredible writing ministry of which You have allowed the three of us to be a part. I thank you for our readers, Lord, and the interesting ways You entwine our lives together displaying the beauty of the body of Christ, how we are all sisters and family bonded together in the love of Christ. God, I thank You for this team of stellar young women with whom I get to minister. We are like iron sharpening iron, and it is so precious to me.
Gabrielle: “I pray that 2012 will be the year of The Word. I pray for each of our readers, for my fellow writers and for myself, that this year the Word of God would become real to us in a whole new, powerful, breath-taking way (Col. 3:16). God, I ask that wherever we are – faithfully reading your word daily or unsure where our Bible even is – that we would draw closer to you through your Word in 2012! I ask you, Lord that we would hear more about you from your own Word than Oprah, Twitter or Hollywood. Please, God, be the primary influence in our lives this year!
I pray for our readers, Lord, that the Word would be living and active in their lives every day (Heb. 4:12). That they would make the time out of a world racing by to marvel in who you are (Ps. 34:8). That they would cultivate a deeper, more intimate relationship with You (John 10:27). That each one would get a glimpse of how much you love them (John 3:16, 15:13).
God, this may 2012 be marked by your children reading your Word, being transformed by your Word and changing the world with your Words (Matt. 28:19-20).”
Happy New Year!
