A New Year’s Prayer


Father, we thank you for a new year.  For new opportunities.  A fresh start.  We thank you for new mercy.  We wouldn’t be here today had it not been for your grace displayed this past year.  We thank you for new life.


Although our bodies are each day growing older, you are at work in our spirits everyday. We’re getting better. We’re getting stronger. And for this we give You thanks.


You know our needs.  You know the challenged we face. Our problems, our frustrations, our complaints and our worries. We release them to your trust. And we look forward to the future.  Knowing that you—our gracious, loving, compassionate Father—have a plan.  May we know that plan. And may we fulfill that purpose for your glory, and in your honor.  In Jesus name we pray.
