Prayer For January 1st

January 1, 2015

new year

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Gracious Heavenly Father,

We thank you for this new day…the first day of a new year. Lord, we come before you and we give ourselves to you. We ask for you to lead and guide us in all that we say and do in the days ahead. We ask that you would continue the healing work that you have begun in each of us.  For those who are in pain physically, emotionally or mentally, we ask for your  healing  hand to be upon us. We ask for your comfort and the strength to carry on during the difficult days. We ask that people would be set free from the things that tie them down and hold them back. Free them from their pasts… their painful memories… their anger… bitterness… unforgiveness… pride and all self-injuring and self-defeating thoughts and actions. May this be the year that we truly live and experience your overcoming power in our lives.

We ask that you would help us to be valiant, brave warriors in the battles we will face. May we always remember, it’s not by our might or power, but by yours that we overcome. We ask for your help to engrave your words of truth, on the tablets of our hearts. May we hear your voice above all others. May we trust your word above everything else. May we keep a heavenly perspective in all that we do and may we never grow so impatient that we settle for less than your best for us. Make us men and women after your own heart, Lord.

Lord, we pray for our leaders. We pray for those in leadership who are Christ followers…please give them fearless, bold hearts of courage to loudly make a stand for you. We pray that  leaders will come to know you in real and life changing ways and then, may they seek to serve you in the roles that you’ve given them. Lord, please use  believers everywhere to be lights in the darkness that point the way to you.

Lord, a new year is a chance at new beginnings and renewed hope. A time to leave the old behind. Help us to dream big and not put you in a box. You are a big God. Much bigger than anything we will ever face. We seek to know you more. We seek to experience all that you have for us. We long to live in the fullness of your joy and love. Help us to rise from the ashes and trust as you mold and shape us into Christ’s image. You tell us we have not because we ask not, so we ask for your favor and your blessing to be upon us and our loved ones, Lord. We ask for you to open your store houses and meet our financial needs. Please pour out your grace and mercy and heal and restore our bodies, our families, our  broken hearts and shattered lives . Please bring calm where there is chaos and please protect those who are in harm’s way.

Lead us from the dark valleys into your glorious light. We look forward to all you have for us in this coming year. We love you , Lord. We are grateful for you and for all you’ve given us. We commit our families, our lives and our needs to you.  We look forward with eager anticipation to everything you will do in us, through us and for us this year. We thank you and praise you Lord, for who you are and all you do. There is none like you and we ask these things  in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Praying God’s richest blessings upon you!

Happy New Year!
Debbie
