PRAYER FOR ENDINGS AND NEW BEGINNINGS

(Psalm 33:18-22) Lord, I’m on my knees again. Lord, I need You. A new year has dawned, and I want to be filled with the hope only You can provide. Last year was consumed with stress, worry, and fear. Even as I went to You in daily prayer, my thoughts would often lead to begging You to fix everything in the way I wanted. I prayed for the health and happiness of family, friends, and strangers. I know You are in control of the world and I need only to trust in You. In the past, I have considered the first day of the year to be a time for renewal, only to fall short of my goals within hours.

Father, today, I am asking for Your help. I ask for You to help me put the past behind me and to move forward seeking to share Your love with others. I pray that in these coming days there will be new beginnings for everyone. I pray we all will seek a closer walk with You. In Your Holy Name, Amen.
