A Prayer for 2015

On the fourth  Sunday of Advent, our congregation read from 2 Samuel 7: 1-11, 16 about David's plan to build a house for God. Even though David's plans seemed noble they were not God's plan. At the end of my message to our congregation, here is the prayer that I wrote. May this prayer encourage us in 2015 to seek God's plan instead of our plans:

Lord show me what you have for me. Help me discover your will for this area of my life. Help me to never move ahead of you. Help me to trust you and to wait upon you for your wisdom and direction. Lord, your will for me is more important than my plans for me. Help me to trust you to bring to pass these plans. Help me trust you to change my plans for your best plan for my life. Amen.
