A New Year Prayer for You and Yours
The New Year can often bring a mixed bag of emotions and memories for many of us. The events of 2020 including a pandemic, racial tensions, joblessness, and political battles created an unprecedented time of unrest and anxiety.
While some may have just experienced the best year ever and look forward to an even greater one looming ahead, others may have just trudged through one deep struggle after another.
The fresh calendar year brings desperate hope for things to be better, with an ache for the still-fresh wounds to slowly begin their process of healing.
Praying at the start of the New Year does not always bring immediate change at the stroke of midnight, but it begins the opening of our hearts to God’s Words of hope and peace.
Whether you have just walked through the greatest year of your life or are incredibly glad to see this one finally over, one truth still rings clear amidst it all. You are not alone. Not ever.
Scripture is filled with prayers of men and women who reached out to God for a fresh start.
Praying is the main source of connection to the one who created you and the one who wants you to experience blessings and promises in the future.
God is a “with us” On the heels of the celebration of the birth of our King Jesus Christ, reminder God has the power to carry us right into a fresh, new start in 2021.
Remember, He is Immanuel, God with you.
Though things and people around us shift and change, our God never changes. May these New Year prayers and your prayers fill your heart and mind with powerful proclamations as you step into 2021.
