Praying Your New Year is Blessed

As a new year begins,
we come to You and ask for Your blessing.

We pray that you would give us joy to fill our days,
peace to fill our hearts,
and love to fill our lives.

Thank You for the plans You have for us in this new year.
We wait in anticipation to see all You will do!

declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you
hope and a future."

A New Year is God's Gift

In the joyful moments - thank Him.
In the busy moments - bless Him.
In the trying moments - trust Him.
In the quiet moments - praise Him.

New Year's Prayer

Dear Lord,
 In the new year, we pray
 that You will guide us each new day
 in paths that are pleasing to You.
 Lord, the new year gives us another chance
 to rededicate our lives to You,
 to study Your Word
 so that we know right from wrong
 and to act in accordance with Your commands.
 Thank You for the sense of
 direction, purpose and peace we get
 from aligning our lives with Your Holy will.
 We pray for the strength and the will to obey You
 each and every day of the new year,
 and when we fail, we pray for Your mercy,
 Your compassion, Your grace and Your love.
 Help us in the new year to be Your faithful servants.
 In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

A New Year's Prayer

A new year is upon us -
a time when we naturally begin to think deeper about ourselves, our families,
our friends, and the world around us. We long to feel better, look better, “do” better,
to grow closer to God and our loved ones - to be better in every way.

As we begin this year anew, we offer this prayer with a hopeful and expectant heart
for God’s blessings for you and for us all.

God, we praise you with all that we are (Psalm 103:2-3),
knowing our strength comes from joy in you (Nehemiah 8:10) now and always.

We praise you for your mercy, for forgiving our sins (Ephesians 1:7).
Remind us that mercy always triumphs over judgment (James 2:13),
and that only you, the God of all grace, will restore us and make us strong (1 Peter 5:10).

Renew our hearts in this year,
and let your gentle Spirit lead us down the right path (Psalm 143:10).

Please grant us peace in our hearts (Proverbs 14:30).
May our burdens lead us to rest in you as we grow closer to you each day
(Matthew 11:28).

Let us fill our minds with truth, righteousness, beauty and all things worthy of praise
(Philippians 4:8).

Thank you, God, for your promise to watch over us always (Psalm 32:8)
and to hold us up with your victorious right hand (Isaiah 41:10).

Thank you, God, for giving us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
Let us take every action in the coming year, fixing our eyes on Jesus
(Hebrews 12:1-2).
