A. Praise God

  • Reflect: Concerning the Gentiles, God says in the prophecy of Hosea, “Those who were not my people, I will now call my people. And I will love those whom I did not love before.”
    Romans 9:25

    Worship God for who He is; praise Him for His Character:
    Choose from the ff: Trustworthy, Truth, Unchanging, Vine, Victorious, Way, Wisdom, Wonderful, Yearning, Zealous

B. Confess to God

  • Reflect: For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
    Psalms 103:11-12

    – Ask the Lord to examine your life and reveal any sin
    – Humbly repent and ask God to forgive you
    – Thank the Lord for His mercy and grace through Jesus Christ

C. Thank God

  • Reflect: Many sorrows come to the wicked, but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the Lord. So rejoice in the Lord and be glad, all you who obey him! Shout for joy, all you whose hearts are pure!
    Psalm 32:10-11

    Thank God: (2 mins)
    – For His sovereign plan and faithful work in our lives

    – For how God has blessed you last 2018

D. Ask God

  • Reflect: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you”.
    Jeremiah 29:11-12
