Looking into a New Year

yeah, standing here looking into a New Year, sure, 
some things look pretty impossible.
So that's what we're going to do here: 
we're going to pray for the impossible things, the improbable, implausible, impractical things.
We don't just pray for the possible --- because ours is the God who whispers: "With Me nothing, Nothing, NOTHING is impossible." 
You are the God who makes the ridiculously impossible into the miraculously possible,
the unbelievable into the you-better-believe-it,
the never into the now.
We are the people who pray it bold at the beginning of a New Year: BUT GOD.
We pray the impossible prayers -- because as long we are with God: *nothing is impossible.*
