New Year’s Resolution
We all know what a new year means – new resolutions! From aiming to lose weight to swearing off bad habits, many people are professing the new year as a fresh start in their lives.
Unfortunately, these resolutions and new life goals tend to die out at the beginning of the year, leaving many with a feeling of disappointment.
Research conducted by Strava, the social network for athletes, has discovered that Saturday, January 12 is the fateful day of New Year’s resolutions.
After analyzing more than 31.5 million online global activities last January, Strava was able to pinpoint the date when most people report failing their resolution. According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton, just 8 percent of people achieve their New Year’s goals, while around 80 percent fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions.
How can we make sure that 2019 will be a successful year?
We believe that perseverance, faith, and action are the key factors to success, which is why we have the chain of prayer. The Chain of Prayer encourages you to focus on overcoming a particular problem or achieving a goal you want, through consistent attendance at one of our meetings that is most helpful to you. For example, if you have a financial goal, you will attend the Strong Nation meetings every Monday for a number of consecutive weeks in order to focus on achieving the results you want in that area.
By doing the chain of prayer, you will apply the messages you learn from each meeting and use your faith in God to overcome whatever problem you have been facing.
How do I start a chain of prayer?
The first thing you need to do is think about the main problem you are facing at the moment and select the day or days that you will make your chain. By doing this, you will put your full focus into overcoming this particular problem and then, once this is solved, start a new chain for another problem. This will enable you to tackle your problems one by one.
Furthermore, it is required that you attend a Sunday meeting every week, as this will help you stay strong in your faith and continue your chain of prayer.
If you want 2019 to be the best year of your life, take part in a chain of prayer and see a transformation in your life!.
