A New Year's Prayer

Scripture: Exodus 33:12–23

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: New Years Messages

Synopsis: Moses was a humble man and a hopeful man because he remained a prayerful man who lived in the reality of God. He wasn't just a religious man who "said his prayers" each night before going to sleep! From this prayer of Moses in Exodus 33 we learn important truths. He offers two requests to the Lord that are the same two requests we must take to the Lord if we are to develop the kind of relationship he had with God and if we are to correctly handle the uncertainties that lie ahead in the new year.
