Prayer for the New Year

A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year. – Deuteronomy 11:12

God of beginnings, be with us as we ring in the New Year! Be with my family and friends, my church, my community, my nation, and this whole wide world of people who are waking up to a fresh start. And please be with me, too! Thank you, Lord, for all you have in store for me this year. Let me be a willing partner in your plans.

Get up and pray for help all through the night. Pour out your feelings to the Lord, as you would pour water out of a jug. – Lamentations 2:19 CEV


Gracious Lord, sometimes I feel that I’ve landed right in the middle of an emotional windstorm. As thoughts whirl wildly within me, calm my fearful heart and mind. I realize that my overall well-being begins with my ability to control my emotions. As I pray and lay my concerns before you, bring stillness and peace to my mind and my spirit. Amen.
