New year prayer short

The New Year can often bring a mixed bag of emotions and memories for many of us. Some may have just experienced the best year ever and look forward to an even greater one looming ahead. Others may have just trudged through one deep struggle after another. The fresh calendar year brings desperate hope for things to be better, with an ache for the still-fresh wounds to slowly begin their process of healing.

Whether you’ve just walked through the greatest year of your life, or are incredibly glad to see this one finally over, one truth still rings clear amidst it all. You are not alone. Not ever.

Our God is a “with us” God. On the heels of the celebration of the birth of our King, that reminder has the power to carry us right into a fresh, new start. He is Immanuel, God with us. And though things and people around us shift and change, our God never changes.

A Prayer to Keep God First this New Year:

Dear God,

Thank you that you make all things new. Thank you for all that you’ve allowed into our lives this past year, the good along with the hard things, which have reminded us how much we need you and rely on your presence filling us every single day.

We pray for your Spirit to lead us each step of this New Year. We ask that you will guide our decisions and turn our hearts to deeply desire you above all else. We ask that you will open doors needing to be opened and close the ones needing to be shut tight. We ask that you would help us release our grip on the things to which you’ve said “no,” “not yet,” or “wait.” We ask for help to pursue you first, above every dream and desire you’ve put within our hearts.

We ask for your wisdom, for your strength and power to be constantly present within us. We pray you would make us strong and courageous for the road ahead. Give us ability beyond what we feel able, let your gifts flow freely through us, so that you would be honored by our lives, and others would be drawn to you.

We pray that you’d keep us far from the snares and traps of temptations. That you would whisper in our ear when we need to run, and whisper in our heart when we need to stand our ground.

We pray for your protection over our families and friends. We ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy; that you would be a barrier to surround us, that we’d be safe in your hands. We pray that you would give us discernment and insight beyond our years, to understand your will, hear your voice, and know your ways.

We ask that you would keep our footsteps firm, on solid ground, helping us to be consistent and faithful. Give us supernatural endurance to stay the course, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call us away from a close walk with you.

Forgive us for the times we have worked so hard to be self-sufficient, forgetting our need for you, living independent of your spirit. Forgive us for letting fear and worry control our minds, and for allowing pride and selfishness wreak havoc over our lives. Forgive us for not following your ways and for living distant from your presence.

We confess our need for you…fresh…new…again. We ask that you make all things new, in our hearts, in our minds, in our lives, for this coming year. We pray for your refreshing over us.

Keep your words of truth planted firm within us, help us to keep focused on what is pure and right, give us the power to be obedient to your word. And when the enemy reminds us where we have been, hissing his lies and attacks our way, we trust that your voice speaks louder and stronger, as you remind us we are safe with you and your purposes and plans will not fail. We ask that you will be our defense and rear guard, keeping our way clear, removing the obstacles, and covering the pitfalls. Lord, lead us on your level ground.

We ask that you would provide for our needs, we ask for your grace and favor. We pray for your blessings to cover us, we pray that you would help us to prosper and make every plan that you have birthed in our heart to succeed. We pray that others would take notice of your goodness and could not help but to say, “These are the ones that the Lord has blessed.”

Help us to be known as great givers, help us to be generous and kind, help us to look to the needs of others and not be consumed by only our own.

May we be lovers of truth, may the fruits of your spirit be evident in our lives – your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Shine your light in us, through us, over us. May we make a difference in this world, for your glory and purposes. Set you way before us. May all your plans succeed. We may reflect your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs your presence and healing.

To you be glory and honor, in this New Year, and forever.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Almighty Father, I thank You graciously for a New Year. I ask You, Lord, to bless my family, as we begin this blessed year with a renewed hope in You.

Lord, I thank You so much for all that You have done for my family and I. Your hand on our lives is so much more than we could ask for. Your blessings are so greatly appreciated.

Bless my resolutions in 2019

Bless my resolutions and promises. Give me the strength to carry them through. Fill me with hope, confidence and positivity.

Lord, remind me of my truest values and deepest desires. Help me to live in the goodness that comes from doing what You want me to do.

Help me to put aside anxiety about the future and regret of the past, so that I might live in peace with You now, one day at a time.

Remembering the shortcomings of the past year

In the past year, You have seen my challenges, been saddened by my weaknesses, and rejoiced in my successes.

As this New Year commences, let me remember the past year. In so doing, I truly repent of all that has hindered me from abiding in You. Forgive me, for the promises and resolutions I made and never fulfilled.

Forgive me, for the times I neglected prayer and Your word as my focus. Let me recall the things that hindered me from getting closer to You and keeping Your word.

May I come to realize my mistakes and shortcomings and make amends. Help me Lord, to be willing to forgive myself and to forgive others.

Matthew 28:20 “And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Keeping my focus on the Lord in 2019

Lord, help me to abide by Your words and keep my focus on You. May I be obedient to Your ways and Your will in my life. By this I know You will be with me in all my joys and pain, till the end of time.

Philippians 2:1-3 “So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.  Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves”

May my focus be on love, peace and unity within my family and friends, and foster this peace and unity too with my Christian brethren. May I be guided by Your Holy Spirit as I read Your Word and practice the principles of it in my daily life.

As we could be different from one another, may we always learn to look at our own failings and the depth of our faith before we rebuke another of their faith in You.

May we be slow to anger and  condemnation but be swift to respond in love, peace and forgiveness. May unity be our motto and love for one another be our utmost desire in this new year.

Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Humbling myself before the Lord

Lord, I pray never to be too proud to feel that I am closer to You than any other. Help me understand that You look truly at my heart.

You know exactly what I am thinking and doing and I will be judged accordingly in measure of my faith.

Help me to always remember that You are closer to those who need You more than the ones who are proud and conceited of Your inheritance.

In this New Year, may all we do bring You Great Glory. As we decrease in fame and vain glory, may You increase in all Praise and Honor and Glory.

John 3:30 Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. He must increase, but I must decrease.

Bless my New Year 2019 Resolutions

Heavenly Father, bless my resolutions for the coming year. May they be in accordance with your will and direction for my life. Bless me with success, health and wisdom. Guide my thoughts and prayers. Ane help me exercise my faith to bring it all to fruition in 2019.

May my efforts be to sincerely bring many to know You and to believe in the Lord Jesus, the way, the truth, and the life.

May the lost be found, the ones living in darkness come to light through my intercession, outreach, guidance and prayers.

I pray this New Year is blessed with Your presence in all I do as I pray and ask in the blessed name of Jesus, Amen!

Prayer for a Happy New Year

May the Lord make my New Year a happy one…
Not by shielding me from sorrow and pain, but by strengthening me to bear it if it comes.
Not by making my path easy, but by making me sturdy enough to tread any path.
Not by taking hardship from me, but by taking all cowardice and fear from my heart as I meet hardships.
Not by granting me unbroken sunshine, but by keeping my face bright even in the shadows.
Not by making my life always pleasant, but by showing me where men and His cause need me most and by making me zealous to be there and to help …
God, make my year a happy one.

—Guideposts magazine (January 1973)

God’s Will in the New Year

Father, I abandon myself into your hands.
Do with me whatever you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you.
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
Into your hands I commend my spirit.
I offer it to you with all the love that is in my heart.
For I love you, Lord, and so want to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father. Amen.

—Charles de Foucauld, 1858-1916

Comfort for the New Year

Heavenly Father,
At midnight,
When the old year dies,
And the new comes bounding in,
I draw strength from knowing
That in the next twelve months
The snows will go
The buds will burst
The heat will rise
The leaves will fly,
That all these things will happen
According to Your schedule
And in Your time;
That there is order in Your universe,
And that I am part of it.

—Van Varner, longtime GUIDEPOSTS editor and former editor-in-chief

Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.
—St. Francis of Assisi

Credo for the New Year

I believe
That I enter a glorious new year
To be filled with prayer and praise.
With service to God and mankind,
With inspired creative activity.
I believe
That God’s presence goes with me
Wherever I shall go this year,
By train or Ires or car or boat,
Slowly paced on foot, or high in air.
I believe
His love is shining in my body,
His wisdom guides my mind,
His peace fills me with poise,
His strength is ever at my call.
Oh I believe
That this is God’s new year.

—Elizabeth Searle Lamb

Prayer of Saint Teresa of Avila

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.
—St. Teresa of Avila
