Daily Meditation for February 2, 2021

There is no question that 2020 was a difficult year. As we now enter the beginning of 2021, let us pray this prayer by Debbie McDaniel entitled “A Prayer for Hope after a Hard Year”: “Loving God, thank you for helping us to make it through a most difficult year. Thank you that you’ve carried us daily through the uncertainty of deep waters and through the pain of hard losses. We are constantly aware of how much we need you, your grace, your strength, and your power working through even the toughest days. Thank you for your reminder that both in seasons of celebration and in seasons of brokenness, you are always with us. Thank you for your powerful presence in our lives. Thank you for bringing us into the new year ahead. We look forward to all that You have in store. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
