A new year brings lots of possibilities. Many of us use this natural reset as an opportunity to identify new goals around our health, finances, and relationships. Those goals always have one thing in common: They are designed to improve and strengthen our lives. So, have you ever considered setting yearly goals for your spiritual life?

When it comes to your relationship with the Lord, the idea of setting goals might feel a bit odd, but identifying how you want your spiritual life to grow is an important step toward getting there. After all, direction—not just intention—determines destination.

We have developed a resource to help you reflect and prepare for the year ahead through a posture of prayer. These exercises and reflective questions will help you cultivate a space to invite God into the busyness of your day-to-day life and find direction through his guidance.
