A Writer's Prayer for 2019

By Andrea Merrell

Lord, I praise you for your Word that is a lamp unto my feet and a light for my path. As I step into the New Year of 2019, I know your plan is not to harm me but to prosper me and give me a bright future. Therefore, as I meditate on your Word day and night—and as I do everything written therein—I believe whatever I set my hand to do will prosper and come to maturity. My life as a writer is in your hands.

Because you are with me and will never leave or forsake me, my success is guaranteed according to your specific plan for my life. Your Word says I am blessed in all my comings and goings, and that goodness and mercy will follow me all my days.

Please lead me in paths of righteousness for your name’s sake so I may prosper according to your Word. Your Word tells me I am blessed in the heavenly realm with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Even when the Enemy rises up against me, I will not falter or fail in the calling you have placed upon me. I thank you for the gifts, talents, and abilities you have given me. May I never take them for granted but use them for your glory.

Lord, promotion comes from you, and you will open doors of opportunity for me that only you can open ... and no man can shut. My confession for 2019 is that I will continually encounter divine appointments and connections and be surrounded by divine favor wherever I go.

Thank you, Lord, that you have already predestined my prosperity and success and, through me, your name will be glorified.

In the precious name of Jesus, amen.
