A Prayer for the New Year

cute cottage

I am a tenant of this earth, Lord,

A lucky soul to whom you have given a generous lease of life.

 

The rent? You’ve asked for none,

except that I have faith and live accordingly.

 

 And so, I dedicate this year to you, Lord.

With a promise to improve in spirit, mind and body,

the run-down property that bears my name.

 

This year I’ll try to keep the house where I reside

as you would have me keep it –

structure firm, chambers clean, windows

shining from inside with such a light

that passersby will stop to ask,

“Who lives here?” or “Who owns this lovely place?”

 

and I shall tell them with a humble nod,

“I’m just a tenant here.

The owner, who deserves your praise, is God.”

Faith Bible Ministries Blog ~ An Online Study of the Bible

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This online Bible study series addresses primary New Testament words in their original language - Koinè Greek - as opposed to mainly using the English translations; which is like adding color to a black-and-white picture.
