Pray that at the start of this new year the saints would spend time to meet God as the real light-bearer and receive the shining of His light in order to have a new beginning (Gen. 1:14; Mal. 4:2 and note 21; 1 John 1:5; Rev. 21:23).

Gen. 1:14—And God said, Let there be light-bearers in the expanse of heaven to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years.

Mal. 4:2—But unto you who fear My name will the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings, and you will go forth and leap about like well-fed calves.

1 John 1:5—And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

Rev. 21:23—And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon that they should shine in it, for the glory of God illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
