IGNITE YOUR FAITH. Quite often our New Year’s resolutions are based on our will power to succeed. According to Forbes magazine, only eight per cent of people achieve their resolution goals.

“ This year, I hope to read the Koran more often. Sometimes I am taken up by work and spare little time to read and understand Allah’s word yet He is the supreme power.”

Muhammad Magala, administrator

“ Spiritually, I hope to spend much time assessing myself so that I can avoid all ungodly acts. I will continue praying to God for blessing so that He can help me achieve my dreams.”

“To pray more. Many times when I am struggling, my last resort is to pray. It should be my first resort, but I often try to fix things myself without bothering God. Then, when I realise that things are not getting better, and are sometimes getting worse, it dawns on me that I should have taken my problem to God first. In the New Testament, Paul tells us, “…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7). Who couldn’t use a little more prayer?”
