Pray that as he ministers to God’s people, there will be a manifestation of increased strength, grace, anointing, and revelation of the mind and will of God concerning your life and STBC/EDM in the year 2024. According to Psalm 16:11 (NIV)

“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Psalm 16:11 (NIV)

“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” (John 17:21–23 NLT)

  1. Praise God for answers to prayers and ask the Holy Spirit to pray through you so God’s plan and agenda for your life may be fulfilled in the year 2024. 1 Corinthians 2:11 (NIV)

“For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:11 (NIV)

You can do all things through Christ that strengthens you in the name of Jesus.
