I bring my request on behalf of all who are praying as this year ends and the new one begins in just hours. You hear our prayers. You desire our prayers as part of our relationship. We draw closer to you through prayer. Hear your servants as they bring their petitions. May we see a mighty work of your hands in answer. Even if we don’t live to see the results, Father, we trust your faithfulness. We trust your heart and your love for us. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight to fear your name, and give success to your servant today, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.” (Nehemiah 1:11 ESV)
