December Prayer Focus

Typically this time of year causes most individuals to reflect on the past year and look forward to a new one. During Thanksgiving, we reflect on every provision for which we are thankful, as well as for our families. Christmas ushers in a time of reflection of the Savior’s birth, Christ born as a man, and what that revelation means to the believer. Then December 31 rolls upon us, and we reflect on what we would like to change, what we would like to implement for the next year, and we go as far as to make resolutions.

I would encourage administrators and the staff of the University-Model® to reflect on our Savior. I have found it sobering when I begin to look at the “I Am” who made Himself known through the life of Jesus Christ. The more I look at the beauty He encompasses, His majesty and power, and His infiniteness and completeness, the greater He becomes and the less I am. As I look into His face and hear, the more I want Him to complete His desires in me and the less I focus on the things that can consume my gaze.

I do believe the more we reflect on His glory, we will be transformed into His likeness. As we are transformed, our work will become light because the Spirit – who is alive and working – will guide us in all things. May our resolution this year be to reflect on the Father’s face and bear the image to the families and students we have been entrusted to serve. My prayer is through the University-Model®, the next generation will be impacted by students who live out their talents for the glory of God.

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord–who is the Spirit–makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” -2 Cor 3:18.
