This is the confidence that we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. (1 John 5:14)
The turning of the year is a time to give thanks for God’s provision and to pray for breakthroughs in the year to come. We can also call on our mighty Father about issues that are holding our brothers and sisters back: global poverty and the climate crisis. Because our God is sovereign over all the earth!
