Peace Prayers for New Year
Father, I know you are all-powerful and Sovereign, and nothing is too difficult for you. But I still struggle with anxiety and dread now, carrying the same weight I did yesterday. While I’m anxious to leave everything entirely in your hands, it isn’t easy to shake. Please take all that is dragging me off my shoulders and heavy heart and give me the tranquility only you can provide.
I know you are concerned about whatever bothers me, and your ears are open to my prayers. I know you understand my challenges and see exactly where I am, even when I feel like no one is looking. While I reflect on your teachings and truth, guard my heart and mind in you today.
For many of us, the prayers for New Year may have mixed emotions and memories. The events of the last year, which included a continuing pandemic, racial tensions, unemployment, and political instability, caused an unparalleled period of unrest and worry. While some may have had the finest year ever and are looking forward to an even better one ahead, others may have gone through one terrible hardship after another.
The new calendar year brings urgent optimism for things to improve and agony for the still-fresh wounds to begin their healing process. Prayers for the new year may not necessarily result in immediate change at the stroke of midnight, but it does begin the process of opening our hearts to God’s Words of hope and peace.
