Prayer for Wisdom and Guidance:
Psalms 37:23 “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”
Lord, I come before you today seeking guidance and direction in my life. I know that you are the one true source of wisdom and understanding, and I trust in your goodness and grace.
I pray that you would reveal to me the paths that you would have me take, and that you would lead me by your Spirit. Help me to trust in your plan for my life, even when it is not clear to me.
I ask that you would give me the courage to follow your lead, even when it takes me out of my comfort zone. And I pray that you would give me the wisdom to discern your will for my life, and the strength to carry it out. Psalm 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.”
I know that you are with me always and that you are working all things for my good. Help me to trust in you, and to follow you with confidence and joy.
In your holy and mighty name, I pray, Amen.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Prayer for the New Year:
Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Heavenly Father, As we enter into the new year, we come before You with hearts full of gratitude and hope. Thank you for the blessings and opportunities of the past year, and for Your faithfulness in carrying us through the challenges.
We ask for Your guidance and protection as we embark on this new journey. May Your presence be with us every step of the way, and may Your will be done in our lives. I believe with you, this new year is going to be my best ever.
We pray for Your wisdom and discernment as we make decisions and set goals for the new year. Help us to use the talents and resources You have given us to honor You and serve others. I vow to you to let my light shine before men, so that you may be glorified.
We also lift up to You the concerns and needs of our families, friends, and communities. May Your love and grace be evident in the way we care for and support one another.
As we look ahead to the unknowns and uncertainties of the new year, we trust in Your sovereignty and promise to never leave or forsake us. Help us rest in Your peace and hope in Your good plans for our lives. Rev. 21:5 “He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
In Your precious name we pray, Amen.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
