Blessed be God Almighty for bringing us into the threshold of another year – AD 2019. What a marvelous God we serve and Who has indeed done marvelous things for us. To Him alone be all the glory, honour, praise, power, dominion and majesty, now and forevermore. I appreciate God for the testimonies of New Heights He brought our way in various dimensions at individual, family, church and corporate levels in 2018. God will surely uphold the blessings as we flow into the New Year in Jesus name.
God spoke to His people, Israel………. Behold, I will do a new thing (Isaiah 43:19). In this New Year that has just commenced, I see God doing new things for us His people, resulting in new testimonies of God’s goodness and faithfulness to us. God is a promise and covenant keeper. He has given us His word and prophecy for the year. It is AD 2019: Our Year of COVENANT OF PEACE (Isaiah 54:10). When we believe God and His prophet, we shall be established and prospered (2 Chronicles 20:20).
There are generally three dimensions to prophecy: Promise, Prayer and Performance. What is laid before us at this present time is a promise to make us beneficiaries and partakers of the Covenant of Peace. The action or step then required of us is PRAYER.
In prayer, we move God to act on our behalf, activating that which He has promised to do for us. Graciously, we serve God who answers prayer (Psalm 65:2). In this month of January, we are all encouraged to lay a solid foundation for what God will do for us, in us and through us in this New Year – 2019. It is an opportunity and a privilege we must all grab – Matthew 11:28; Proverbs 8:17; Psalm 27:7-9.
Beloved brethren and people of God, we must be determined to pray – unceasing, unwavering, consistent, committed and faith-backed prayer as we trust God for the outpouring of blessings upon our lives in 2019. The prayer of the righteous avail much (James 5:16). God is prepared to meet our expectations this year as we pray to Him.
All our local churches, zones, districts, axes and regions are expected to purposefully use this prayer guide which has been carefully prepared by our Prayer Ministry. You are also at liberty to incorporate other prayer inputs from the local church. No one should be left out of this prayer arrangement. May God reward our participation as we do it in the spirit of love, obedience, unity, cooperation and oneness in Jesus name.
I appreciate our Prayer Ministry for working to give us this prayer material. God bless you all. Welcome to 2019 – Our Year of Covenant of Peace.
Shalom and Maranatha.
