New Year's Prayer

Father YHWH,I pray thanking You for allowing me, my family, church family, friends and enemies to come this far in the year 2011. No matter the circumstances that befall us in the year, me and others through faith gave our problems to You, knowing that You would solve them as promised if we through faith and prayer asked You. Thank You Father; Thank You also for our infirmities and health; Thank You for our jobs, homes and finances; Thank You for food on our tables. Father YHWH, if You allow us through grace and mercy to come into the new year 2012, we promise to continue to uphold and evangelize Your Word to others whenever we have the slightest chance. We promise to let our light shine before others that they may see our salvation through Christ Jesus. Father YHWH, we thank You for just being the only God that is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscience! In Your precious Son Jesus' name. Amen.

They searched for a character flaw in him, but couldn’t find one. Instead, they baited a trap. They convinced King Darius to sign an irrevocable law forbidding prayer to anyone but the king. Daniel’s custom was to face Jerusalem and pray three times a day. He did not change this practice when he learned of the new law. His enemies plotted and schemed and successfully caught Daniel breaking the law—they caught him in the terrible act of praying. They reported him to the King. The news deeply troubled King Darius.

He had no choice, he had to carry out the punishment prescribed by the law—to cast Daniel into the den of lions. The times looked bleak, but Daniel slept comfortably with the lio…
