Prayer for new beginnings

by Gavin (South Africa)

Dear Lord Almighty. You are the only one who knows my heart and the only one who knows my burning desire to live life according to your will.

I try but fail so many times to live a life where I can lay my head to rest at night knowing I have done no wrong. I pray to you Almighty Father that as I am writing this letter that you fill me with your love and power so that I can go forth and be a blessing to others.

I ask, I plea that you forgive me of all my sin and that I may forgive those who sinned against me. I pray that today is the start of a new way of living and that everthing that happened in the past is forgiven and forgotten.

May I be a good husband, father and friend that every thing I do is for your will only. O God I do not want to worry about my paste mistakes but rather give all my effort to do your will.

O Lord my God please place your blessing over me that I may start living again

Amen Amen Amen

Father, I Praise You with a new song and declare Your glory and great works among Your people. For everything under the sun, there is a plan and purpose. So I pray that the plans You have for those who call upon You will be manifested.

Help us to believe in ourselves and know that whatever happened in the past is done! We are new creatures in Christ and will move beyond past events. With you, we will walk uprightly, because You direct our steps.

We declare new beginnings and new opportunities, as we place Jesus at the center of our lives.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. 

Isaiah 43:18-19 – Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

New Beginnings

Abba Father, as we focus on new beginnings, show us how to let go of the unforgiveness we hold in our hearts. Help us Lord to release those who have wronged us.

Let us apply wisdom in all situations. In everything we do, it is my prayer that we will surrender to Your will and co-operate with the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 90:12 – So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

A Year of Change

Heavenly Father, we declare that this will be a year of change. This will be a year in which we will place You in Your rightful place in our lives, so that everything will find its place and will be set in order.

We will trust in You and believe that You have the ultimate plan for us.

We will walk in love and unity and wait patiently on You Father, for You work all things together for good, for those who love You and are called according to Your purpose.

Our hearts and lives will overflow with the abundance that will be manifested from this day.

Mark 11:25-26  –  And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

Praise be to You Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! May the peace of Christ rule in our hearts, in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, SO BE IT… Amen and Amen!

Peace Within

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Drenched in Holiness: Prayer for a New Year

Dear God,
On this day I ask You to grant this request?
May I know who I am and what I am,
Every moment of every day.
May I be a catalyst for light and love,
And bring inspiration to those whose eyes I meet.
May I have the strength to stand tall in the face of conflict,
And the courage to speak my voice, even when I’m scared.
May I have the humility to follow my heart,
And the passion to live my soul’s desires.
May I seek to know the highest truth
And dismiss the gravitational pull of my lower self.
May I embrace and love the totality of myself?
My darkness as well as my light.
May I be brave enough to hear my heart?
To let it soften so that I may gracefully
Choose faith over fear.
Today is my day to surrender anything that stands
Between the sacredness of my humanity and my divinity.
May I be drenched in my Holiness
And engulfed by Your love.
May all else melt away.
And so it is.

At the Beginning of the Day

O God,
I find myself at the beginning of another day.
I do not know what it will bring.
Please help me to be ready for whatever it may be.

If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.

If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly.
If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.
If I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.

I pray just for today, for these twenty-four hours,

for the ability to cooperate with others according to the way Jesus taught us to live.
“Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
May these words that he taught us become more than words.

Please free my thinking and feelings and the thinking and feelings of others,

from all forms of self-will, self-centeredness, dishonesty, and deception.
Along with my brothers and sisters,
I need this freedom to make my choices today according to your desires.
Send your Spirit to inspire me in time of doubt and indecision so that, together, we can walk along your path.

Amen.

– J. Veltri, S.J.

Morning Prayer prayer for new beginnings

Gracious God,
Thank you for the gift of today.
Refresh me. Invite me to discover your presence
In each person that I meet
And every event that I encounter.
Teach me when to speak and when to listen
When to ponder and when to share.
In moments of challenge and decision
Attune my heart to the whisperings of your Wisdom.
As I undertake ordinary and unnoticed tasks,
Gift me with simple joy.
When my day goes well, may I rejoice.
When it grows difficult, surprise me with
New possibilities.
When life is overwhelming, call me to
Sabbath moments
To restore your Peace and Harmony.
May my living today reveal your Goodness.

Amen.

– Pat Bergen, C.S.J.

The Prayer of Oscar Romero

It helps, now and then, to step back and take the long view.
The Kingdom is not only beyond our efforts,
It is even beyond our vision.
We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God’s work.
Nothing we do is complete,
Which is another way of saying that
The Kingdom always lies beyond us.
No statement says all that should be said.
No prayer fully expressed our faith.
No confession brings perfection.
No pastoral visit brings wholeness.
No program accomplishes the church’s mission.
No set of goals and objectives includes everything.
This is what we are about.
We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted,
Knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produced effects far beyond our capabilities.
We cannot do everything,
And there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something, and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning,
A step along the way,
An opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest.
We may never see the end results,
But that is the difference
Between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders,
Ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future that is not our own.

Amen.

– Archbishop Oscar Romero

We Awaken in Christ’s Bodyprayer for new beginnings

We awaken in Christ’s body
As Christ awakens our bodies,
And my poor hand is Christ, He enters
My foot, and is infinitely me.
I move my hand, and wonderfully
My hand becomes Christ, becomes all of Him
(for God is indivisibly
Whole, seamless in His Godhood).
I move my foot, and at once
He appears like a flash of lightning.
Do my words seem blasphemous? Then
Open your heart to Him
And let yourself receive the one
Who is opening to you so deeply.
For if we genuinely love Him,
We wake up inside Christ’s body
Where all our body, all over,
every most hidden part of it,
is realized in joy as Him,
and He makes us, utterly, real,
and everything that is hurt, everything
that seemed to us dark, harsh, shameful,
maimed, ugly, irreparably
damaged, is in Him transformed
and recognized as whole, as lovely,
and radiant in His light
he awakens as the Beloved in every last part of our body.

– Symeon the New Theologian

The Spirit of God is Always with Us at This Time, in This Place

We awaken in our time to a Universe which is holy,
to creation which is not an event in the past, but a living event of the present.
We enter a new mode of human presence where we are not merely observers,
but where each of us is a participant in this moment of evolution.

Like all other creatures, we carry with us Wisdom and Values, the dynamics of the Universe.

But unlike other creatures, we must choose whether and how we will live in harmony
within this sacred web of creation.
May we be open to the Source of All Being, Our God within and among us!

We have the capacity to wonder,

and to celebrate this great mystery of existence within such a magnificent Universe!
In us the Universe enters into a great celebration of itself.
We are part of the Dance, the Great Work, the Great liturgy which is the Universe unfolding.

Glory to You, O God, Source of All Being!

This great Liturgy finds expression at this moment in us,
gathered here in a posture of prayerful openness, with listening hearts, loving spirits and a holy wonder.
May the sacred web that unites us with each other, our God and all creation,
ignite communities of light and hope throughout the Earth.
May we be open to the Source of All Being, Our God within and among us!

Together We Pray:

O Gracious, gentle Spirit of Love,
Your energy permeates the Universe,
Igniting Earth with
Your Goodness, Truth and Beauty.
Open our minds and hearts
To a deeper awareness
Of our interconnectedness with You,
Each other and all creation.
May we experience
Your unique presence
Within the sacred web of creation.

Morning Prayer of Gratitude

Let our prayer this morning be one of gratitude. Gratitude did not make it into the list of four “cardinal virtues,” but it is sometimes rightly recognized as a foundational virtue.

Let us each in turn name something worthy of our gratitude, concluding with “and so let us say.”

The group may respond, “For this we are grateful.”

A Prayer of Hope

There are Christians
Who have hysterical reactions
As if the world had slipped out of God’s hands.
They are violent
As if they were risking everything.

But we believe in history.
The world is not a roll of the dice
On its way toward chaos.
A new world has begun to happen
Since Christ has risen?

Jesus Christ,
We rejoice in your definitive triumph
With our bodies still in the breach,
Our souls in tension;
We cry our first “Hurrah!”
Till eternity unfolds itself.

Your sorrow now has passed.
Your enemies have failed.
You are the definitive smile for humankind.

What matter the wait now for us?
We accept the struggle and the death,
Because you, our love, will not die!

We march behind you on the road to the future.
You are with us. You are our immortality?

Take away the sadness from our faces;
We are not in a game of chance?
You have the last word!

Beyond the crushing of our bones,
Now has begun the eternal “Alleluia!”
From the thousands of openings
In our wounded bodies and souls,
There now arises a triumphal song!

So teach us to give voice
To your new life throughout the world,
Because you dry the tears of the oppressed forever?
And death will disappear

– Luis Espinal, S.J.

Prayer is much more than simply talking to God. Prayer is communicating with God. The bible tells us to be “faithful in prayer.” At New Beginnings we desire for every member to be faithful to prayer, personal private prayer, public prayer, small group prayer Having the right attitude is very important in prayer. The bible tells us that being authentic in prayer is essential. We don’t pray to impress others or impress God, but to express many things to God. Jesus modeled prayer for us in Matthew 5. Jesus showed us how to utilize prayer to express His love for God. He pattern prayers of:

Adoration

Praising God for Who He is, extolling His perfect character, nature, and virtues.

Thanksgiving

Praising God for what He has done. Jesus showed us how to utilize prayer to express God’s will purposes.

Supplication

We ask God to supply our needs. We pray for God’s will to be done in our personal lives, in our family, in our church, in our ministry, in our jobs, in our country. Jesus utilized prayer to ask God to provide for our needs. Rick Warren remind us that we should focus on our “needs” and not on our “greeds,” Jesus showed us how to ask for spiritual protection.

Confession

Jesus showed us how we should ask God to forgive us so we can remain in fellowship with Him. When we confess our sin and ask God for forgiveness: We must ask the Holy Spirit to reveal every sin. We must confess each sin specifically. We must make restitution to others when necessary. We must, by faith, accept God’s forgiveness. He pattern prayers of

Intersession

Jesus showed us how to prayer for others. We must pray for and offer forgiveness for anyone who has wronged us. We also must pray on the behalf of others: our leaders, our neighbors, our friends, and our enemies.

Phil. 4:6-7; Romans 12:12; Matthew 6:5-8; Matthew 6:9-15; 1 John 1:9; 1 John 5:14-15; John 16:24; John 15:5
