Daily Prayer for December 31st, 2020 

HaPpy New Year’s Eve, God—thank you! 😊

As most of us are excited about the end of 2020, we also need to wake up and be aware. Your word indicates that as the time for Christ’s return, darkness and social chaos will intensify—evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and leading people astray. Only you know when Christ will return. “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Times and events that Jesus said must take place before his return are certainly in place. Therefore, it is my goal to be faithful to Christ, now, not later, no matter what happens in the world around me. As long as you let me, I will continue to tell the good news about Jesus and glorify you in Heaven. Glory to you in the highest!! Amen.

Romans 5:3 ESV

Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,

Exodus 14:14 ESV

13 while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
