Prayer for New Year

Heavenly Father,

As we enter into this new year, we give You thanks for all that You have done for us. We are grateful for Your love and grace, which are new every morning.

Lord, we pray that You would guide us and lead us in the path that You have for us this year. Help us to trust in You and to seek Your will in all that we do.

We pray that You would give us strength to overcome any challenges that may come our way and that You would provide for all of our needs.

We pray for Your protection and guidance for our families and loved ones, and for all those who are in need. We pray that You would bring peace to troubled areas of the world and that You would be a light to those who are lost in darkness.

Thank You for Your faithfulness and Your never-ending love. We trust in You and give You all the glory.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
