January 1, 2016 • Life for Leaders
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Today, as we celebrate the beginning of 2016, let us remember that God’s mercies are new every single morning. They never come to an end. That is truly good news for the first day of the year, and for every day thereafter.
Gracious God, thank you for the fact that your steadfast love for us never ceases.
Thank you for the fact that your mercies never come to an end and are new every morning.
Indeed, great is your faithfulness.
All praise be to you, gracious, faithful God! Amen.
