Prayer for favour in a new land
Prayer points for favour
For many reading this, last year would have been a year full of pain, disappointment, trepidation, heartache or loss.
For others, the year was one of great accomplishments and perhaps the beginning of many positive years to come. Regardless, through it all, we thank God, and we give Him all the Glory because guess what? We made it!!
As we begin the new year, we enter into new land, In the name of Jesus! We pray for favour in this new season. We declare that those who faced persecution, those who faced rejection and failure will find favour in this coming year.
Those who reached great heights in 2018 we speak elevation into your life, growth, we pray that may He enlarge your territory. “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted this request.
On our knees we say:
Father we thank you for this past year and the trials that came with it. We thank you that you stood by us, we thank you that we were never alone, that in the difficult moments you comforted us and in the good moments you celebrated with us.
As we enter this new land we pray for your guidance and we pray that you will fight our battles. We pray into this coming year that you will go ahead of us as you did the Israelites, fire by day and cloud by night, deliver our enemies into our hands. In the Name of Jesus.
