I'm just sitting here wondering what you will be doing when the clock strikes 12.
Oh and Happy New Year. Let me get that out of the way because honestly at 12, I'll either be asleep or deep into a book. (I can't wait to dig into my newbies that my sons and sister purchased for me as birthday gifts).
Anyway, I wanted to drop in really quick to remind you of two important things:
I know we get caught up in tradition, rituals, and trends but never wait on the turn of a clock or calendar to improve yourself or your life
Holistic wellness includes spiritual wellness (spiritual wellness is the least focused on and often overlooked)
When you include spiritual wellness you start to feel a deep sense of purpose, inner peace, and harmony. In order to attain spiritual wellness, you need a spiritual regimen and need to create yourself a personal spiritual gym. Things like prayer, fasting, consecrating, stillness, reflection, and journaling are all equipment that you can use to exercise your spiritual muscles so you become spiritually fit.
So tonight, I'm sending you this prayer and as you recite it, I pray that the Holy Spirit will take over and make intercession for you and as you ask in faith, that God will grant you every thing that you need that pertains to life and godliness in 2024 and beyond.
Thank you for bringing us to this appointed time. We know that it is not without purpose for this season of our lives. Forgive us for falling short this year and prior to this year. We repent of our sins and ask that you cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Thank you for your divine protection over me and my family. I ask that your Holy Spirit continues to guide and protect me and my family all of 2024, and that you make our way prosperous. We step into the power and authority that you have given us as a child of God and we decree that no weapon formed against us or our families shall prosper and every tongue that rises against us shall be condemned. We thank you for shielding us from the fiery dart of the evil one. Father, we ask that any word curses, backlash, evil thoughts, wicked wishes, conspiracy, or traps that were meant for us, be cut down at the root and sent back to the pits of hell. We return love, light, and truth back to the senders. Bless our enemies. Bless them so good that we will no longer be their focus. May our lives be an example of your goodness, grace, and mercy so that others will be drawn to Jesus. May we only have an appetite for righteousness and truth. May we not partake in or be recipients of gossip and slander, in the mighty name of Jesus. We apply the blood of Jesus over our lives and the lives of our family. Thank you that nothing can stand against the precious blood. May the blood of Jesus cover our lives. May the blood of Jesus keep us healthy. May the blood of Jesus give us ideas and strategies that will bring wealth so that we become lenders and not borrowers. May every evil target that was aimed our way be cast down right now in Jesus name. May the fire from heaven purify our hearts and minds and may we always find ourselves doing, thinking, and speaking things that will bring you glory. In Jesus name. Amen!
Happy New Year! May you experience 365 days of harmony, simplicity, tranquility, and soulfulness. Remain spiritually well!
Grace and Peace,
Pamela D. Smith
