Prayer for New Beginnings

Father God,

We thank You for new beginnings. We don’t need a list of New Year’s resolutions or a silver ball to drop on Times Square for us to enjoy a fresh start. Our new beginnings commence with You, for Your love is unfailing. Your “mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning” (Lamentations 2:22-23).

Please help us forget what lies behind, so we don’t drag any shame, regret or sense of personal failure into the New Year. Lead us as we strain forward to what lies ahead, pressing on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14, paraphrased).

We pray for opportunities to share our redemption stories with our sons and daughters, our grandsons and granddaughters, so they, too, trust You for their own new beginnings.

In Christ’s Name, we pray.
