Here we are with a brand new year facing us again. What are we going to do with this new opportunity to start all over again… for many of us, a journey that we have been on many times, usually starting Janurary 1st of every new year. Have you made any new resolutions? Are you going to go to the gym more often? Are you going to finally read the bible in a year? Are you finally going to ask out the person you have a crush on? Do you remember any of your old resolutions from years past? Any chance of revitalizing any of them?
One thing that Janurary 1st always brings is a freash start. Everything is possible. Your only limit is your imagination!
Here is a prayer to give your New Year and your new resolutions a spiritual head start. God Bless 2012!
A Prayer for the New Year
What shall I ask for the coming year
What shall my watchword be
What should thou do for me, dear Lord What can I do for thee?
Lord, I would ask for a holy year
Spent in thy perfect will Help me to walk in thy very steps
Help me to please thee still.
Lord, I would ask for a trustful year
Give me thy faith divine
Taking my full inheritance
Making thy fulness mine!
Lord, I would ask for a year of love
O let me love thee best
Give me the love that faileth not
Beneath the hardest test.
Lord, I would ask for a year of prayer
Teach me to walk with thee
Breathe in my heart the Spirit’s prayer
Pray thou thy prayer in me!
Lord, I would ask for the dying world
Stretch forth thy mighty hand Thy truth proclaim, thy power display
This year in every land.
Lord, I would ask for a year of joy
Thy peace, thy joy divine
Springing undimmed through all the days
Be thy days of shade or shine.
Lord, I ask for a year of hope Looking for thee to come
And hastening on that year of years
That brings us home to you.
