Breakthrough Prayers

New Year, New Beginnings

Posted by on

God of New Beginnings,

Thank you for this new year and for the gift of each new day.  With every dawn comes the opportunity to co-create with you; to continue the story we author together.  And so I ask that you break through the darkened corners of my life with the light of your love.

When I am hurt, remind me of your unending grace and grant me the courage to forgive. Where I feel shame, strengthen my confidence and belief in your love for me. When I experience jealousy or anger, enable me to find in or believe the best of my neighbor. When I feel despair, rekindle a sense of hope within. Where I know grief or sadness, bring joy—even small doses, that my heart might sing again.

I cannot change the past but I do have a say in my future.  Embolden me to take the first steps toward living the life I want—the life you desire for me.

In Jesus’ name I pray.

Amen.
