New Years Prayer
As the old year ends and a new one begins, take time.
Time to remember the struggles you faced,
And mistakes you might have made,
And maybe even loved ones you lost.
In every year, you experience heartache.
This one was no different.
And in remembering, find a seed of hope hidden in yesterday.
Remember how you’ve been blessed.
Relive when you found unexpected strength.
Recall where you saw God’s great Spirit at work.
And know his mercy kept you going all this time.
Recognize his mercy.
Ask for his peace.
Prepare us Lord for the New Year.
Lift us up and place in our hearts,
A renewed desire to know and worship you more.
Give us your abundant grace.
Shower us with your healing love.
May your eternal Kingdom reign in our hearts and our lives.
May the New Year show us once again your eternal mercy and glory.
And let us sing your praises with great joy.
In Jesus name, Amen.
