Jeremiah 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people’.

Gracious God, as many Church communities will renew their Covenant with You this January, we take a moment to reflect upon the relationship we have with You. A relationship offered freely to us, no strings attached, no hidden agendas. A relationship that seeks to build us up, support, equip and encourage us, whatever the circumstances. A relationship where wrongs are forgiven and reconciliation is readily available. A relationship that is constantly renewed and refreshed. A relationship rooted and sustained in hope and in love. Lord God, at the start of a new year, we give thanks for Your unfailing love for us. Help us to cherish the relationship you offer to us. Help us to nurture and protect our covenant with You in the days to come. In the name of Jesus, Your Son we pray, Amen.
