As we enter into this new year, we come before You with grateful hearts. We thank You for the blessings of the past year and ask for Your continued guidance and provision in the year to come.
We confess that we have not always put You first in our lives and humbly ask for Your forgiveness. We commit to making You the center of all that we do and to obediently following Your will for our lives.
We pray for Your protection and provision for our families, friends, and loved ones. We intercede for the leaders of our nation and for peace and unity throughout the world.
We ask for Your strength and wisdom as we face the challenges and opportunities of this new year. We trust in Your unfailing love and faithfulness, knowing that You are always with us and that nothing can separate us from Your love.
We give You all the glory, honor, and praise, now and forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
