Prayer Journal for New Year's Eve 12/31/2023 "Just Wait!"

Prayer Journal December 31, 2023



I am no longer my own, but thine.Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.Put me to doing, put me to suffering.Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee,exalted for thee or brought low for thee.Let me be full, let me be empty.Let me have all things, let me have nothing.I freely and heartily yield all thingsto thy pleasure and disposal.And now, O glorious and blessed God,Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it.And the covenant which I have made on earth,let it be ratified in heaven. Amen. 


Read:  Luke 2:21-40                                                                     



Luke 2:40 says, “The child grew up and became strong.  He was filled with wisdom and God’s favor.”

·       How was your Advent season of waiting?

·       Reflect on this past year (2023) and note the ways you have seen God’s favor upon your life.  Also note the challenges you faced during this past year. 

·       What can we learn from Simeon and Anna in today’s Bible verses?

·       When have you seen Jesus?



God is with us when we are together.



How will you engage your faith through prayer, Bible study, fellowship, service, generosity, and witness in 2024?



Where have you seen the hands and feet of Jesus this past year?  How will you be the hands and feet of Jesus in 2024?

 I think you will find that the significance Simeon and Anna witnessed through the presentation of Jesus at The Temple foreshadows the extra ordinary life Jesus would lead and serves as a reminder that God’s promises unfold gradually, we must “Wait for it!”  Anna and Simeon waited patiently, and we are called to wait patiently as the purpose and mission of Jesus fulfils God’s promises for as we wait patiently and faithfully while praying, worshipping, serving, and witnessing.  Here those words again.

“Wait for it!”
