40 Days of Prayer – Starting the New Year off Right – New Years Day

New Years Day Prayer

Father, we thank You and praise You for allowing us to see another New Year!  Father, we thank You that You make all things new. Thank You for all that You’ve allowed us to experience this past year, the good along with the hard things.  We pray that the tears of 2018 will be used to fertilize our ground in 2019.

Father, we pray for Your Spirit to lead us each step of this New Year. We ask that You will guide our decisions and turn our hearts to deeply desire You above all else. Father, we ask that You will open doors needing to be opened and close the ones needing to be shut.

Father, we ask that You would help us release our grip on the things to which You’ve said “no,” “not yet,” or “wait.” We ask for help to pursue You first.  Even above the dreams and desire You’ve put within our hearts.

Father, we pray for Your protection over our families and friends. We pray that You would give us discernment and insight beyond our years, to understand Your will, hear Your voice, and know Your ways.

Father, we ask that You would keep our footsteps firm, on solid ground, helping us to be consistent and faithful. Give us supernatural endurance to stay the course, not swerving to the right or to the left, or being too easily distracted by other things that would seek to call us away from a close walk with You.

Father, we confess our need for You.  Please make us fresh and new again.  This year, we pray for Your refreshing over our lives. Keep Your words of truth planted firm within us.  Please help us to keep focused on what is pure and right, give us the power to be obedient to Your word.

Father, when we are discouraged, please remind us that we are safe with You and Your purposes and plans will not fail. We ask that You will be our defense and rear guard, keeping our way clear, removing the obstacles, and covering the pitfalls.

Father, we ask that You would provide for our needs.  We pray for Your blessings to cover us.  We pray that You would help us to prosper and make every plan that You have birthed in our hearts to succeed.  Father, please help us to reflect Your peace and hope to a world that so desperately needs Your presence and healing.

To God be glorified and honored, this New Year and always.  In Yeshua’s name Amen!
