End of year prayers

Prayers for the end of the year 

By Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun

Hi lovely people, how have you been? The year is slowly coming to an end and I believe in prayer for everything. I don’t know how your year has gone and if you’re like me you may have experienced some highs and lows. However, God has instructed us to give thanks in every situation (1 Thessalonians 5:18) and pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:16).

This post is not about the importance of prayer but it will be imperative to mention something cogent about prayers. Listen, prayer is not only about supplications I.e asking God for stuff. 

It’s not bad to ask for stuff, God enjoys taking care of our needs. However, prayer does something supernatural in us. It strengthens us, it refreshes us, it opens our minds to the revelation of God’s word and so much more. Prayer does WORK in us! It helps us come into the fullness of all God has destined for us. It’s so beautiful to pray and stay in prayers.

So here are some few prayers to pray as we head towards the end of the year.

  • Lord Jesus, I want to thank you for all that has happened this year. Thank you for you for all the blessings that I enjoyed. Thank you for seeing me through the difficult seasons. Thank you for keeping me and my loved ones safe and sound. Thank you for your protection even in the midst of a global pandemic. If I had a billion tongues, it won’t be enough to thank you for everything. Thank you God!
  • Lord Jesus, as this year comes to an end, I want to enjoy a deeper revelation of your love. I know there’s a lot more of your love that I’m yet to experience. You’ve poured it into my heart through the Holy Spirit as you said in Romans 5.5. I’m ready to receive your love and develop stronger convictions of your love for me. 
  • Lord Jesus, I pray that the eyes of my understanding is flooded with light. That any wrong opinions I have about you and your nature, are corrected as I study your word. That I no longer know you by what people say about you but I know you for myself. Open my eyes to see you as the compassionate father that you are. Every false ideas about you is changed in my heart today.
  • Lord Jesus, please direct my steps as I prepare for the new year. I’m open to your leading because I trust you’ll never lead me astray. Lead me in my family, my career, my finances, my ministry. Your word says John 10.27 that we as your sheep follows you when we hear your voice. I hear, I follow and I submit to your complete will. My next year will be solely according to you leading. 
  • Lord Jesus, I pray that the last few days/weeks continues in glory! I pray that all my expectations are met. I pray that no calamity shall befall me and my loved ones. I pray that this end will end on a glorious note. I pray that at the cross over night, my mouth is full of amazing testimonies of your grace. 
  • Add other prayers as led

I hope you are able to speak these words to God as we move towards the end of the year. If you can speak in tongues, pray in tongues as well over these prayers.

I decree that your life continues to go from glory to glory.

With love,

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love.  Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose. On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip. I woke up bright and early ready to face a wonderfu
