A Prayer for the New Year

So, it’s the first morning of the new year! We made it. I wish you and your family many, many blessings. This is my prayer for my family and yours.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We enter Your gates to give you thanks for taking us through another year. We thank You for being with us in trouble. We praise you for never leaving nor forsaking us.

Father God,

As we enter a new year, we are putting all trust into You. Give us the strength to not lean on our own understanding. We pray that You continue to direct our each and every path.

Dear Lord,

We pray that you dwell in our hearts through faith. We pray for the breastplate of righteousness so that we may walk upright in Your sight, keeping Your laws and requirements.


Give us the strength to let go of all bitterness, rage and anger. We forsake all malice. Help us to be compassionate to others and forgive those who have wronged us in the past as Christ forgave us. May we prosper in all that we do and wherever we go.

Father God,

We thank You for Your compassion that never fails. We thank You for Your mercy that is renewed every morning.

In Jesus’ Name,
