New Year's Prayer List

Rather than writing out a bunch of resolutions that I will be sure to break within about five minutes, I have decided to make a New Year's Prayer List. This way, it will help me develop the mindset of sanctification; working with the Holy Spirit to become the woman God wants me to be. So, here is my list thus far. I began making it last night around 2 am, so it might be incomplete.

  • Spiritual - my prayer is that God will help me memorize more scripture, to pray more consistently, to be more patient, to trust God when I am afraid, and to be more humble and forgiving. (clearly there is much more than this, but it would take far too long to write it all down)
  • Physical - To be more healthy. God gave me one body and I need to take care of it in a way that is honoring to Him.
  • Emotional - To base my emotions on what I know to be true in scripture and of God rather than my perceptions.
  • Financial - To be wise and giving with the money God has blessed me with.
  • Career - To seek God's will for my future.
I can't do anything of these things on my own, but I know that at the very least praying for God to help me with these things will draw me closer to Him and might bring me closer to where He wants me to be. Anybody else making resolutions or prayer lists?

I like this idea! it's kind of resolution-y without being just resolutions! And it shows that you are trusting in God, not just your actions for the success of these goals. nicely done.
