2020 was a bumpy ride. Our faith was tested and challenges were given. So, if you are able to say that you conquered the waves and storms of this year, then, you deserve recognition for your brave heart and spirit. With this being said, the end of the year calls for a sincere talk with God, for He is the One who has helped us through our difficulties. Offering a New Year prayer releases our grudges and burdens as we restore ourselves in Christ. Here are some prayers you can use and share with the Lord and those around you.

A New Year Prayer Collection For Gratitude

Here are prayers specifically expressing our gratitude for everything the Lord has done this year. May it be a good report card or a piece of comforting news from the lips of another, it is none other than God who provides everything (Philippians 4:19). It is only fair for us to stop and appreciate how the Lord lovingly favors and cares for everyone despite our many flaws. In that spirit, here are some prayers we can use to express our humble hearts.

Say a Prayer for Good Health

  • “Lord, You are my shelter and my blanket amidst the coldness of the world. Throughout 2020, You constantly gave me comfort and good health. Thank You for letting me know that it is not the world that comforts me but, the God who made me. I look forward to all the next years with You, Amen.” – (Exodus 23:25)
  • “Lord, thank You for being so generous and merciful with me and my family. Despite the drawbacks and the illness, Your Voice never fails to remind us that it is You who is in control. Lord, I do not fear anything knowing that you’re protecting me from harm. Amen.”
  • “Dear Jesus, You did not look away when your followers became sick, not a single strand of disgust or doubt was in Your Heart as You healed the sick. Father, I pray that people will clear out their eyes to see the loving and healing God behind every recovery and rest. Amen.”
  • “Almighty Father, when the sickness presented itself, Your hands are my comfort. You did not hesitate to show Your Mercy upon us for the entire year and I thank You for that. Lord, hide us from sickness for the next years of our lives. Keep us away from decisions that distance us from Your healing Hands. I offer You my life under Your wing for this year and for all the years to come. Thank you, Lord. Amen” – (3 John 1:2)

  • “Lord, what a long year it has been for many. Our faith, health, and capabilities were tested. But, here we are, welcoming another year loved and strengthened by You. No matter how challenging this year will be, I trust that as long as I fight battles with You, the battle has already been won. Amen.” – (Philippians 4:13)
  • “God, I stand today with confidence facing another year of hope and growth. I am weak but, You are strong. I am flawed but, You are perfect.

I cannot withstand anything in places I do not stand with You. Thank You for staying Lord. To me, it’s all that matters. Amen.” – (Exodus 15:2)
  • “2020 was such a difficult year. I am proud to say that I stood boldly with You. This year taught me an important thing, and that’s how I cannot live without You. Thank You for whispering in my ears when I could not hear, thank You for holding my hand as I lost my sight. If You didn’t hold my hand through this year, I would have lost my way. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Amen.”

Proclaim a New Year Prayer for Prosperity

  • “Almighty Father, I thank You for never failing to provide for my needs before I even know that I need it.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.” – (Deuteronomy 8:18)
  • “God, I am unworthy of Your Love yet You give it to me so effortlessly and unconditionally. Thank You for always providing for my needs despite my shortcomings. You call me by my name and You always open the door for me this whole time even when I choose not to see it. I will praise Your Name now and forevermore. Amen.”
  • “Lord, thank You for reminding me all throughout the year that You have plans for me. At times when I doubt myself, thank You for not abandoning me and for reminding me that I am worthy because of Your Will and love. This year is far from perfect but, I learned that Your Will is more desirable than perfection. Please keep me grounded to You at all times. Amen.” – (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • “You took my hand and cleansed my soul. When my ignorance seeks something that will wreck me, You provide me wisdom. Lord, I am sorry for the times when my eyes are peeled in the wrong direction. I will enter this new year knowing that everything is already in place because of the Great God I serve. Amen.”

A New Year Prayer Collection For Intervention

A new year marks a new door that God opens for us. With this door, we are blessed with arrays of different lessons in disguise, life-changing gifts, and soul-building events. But because we are still in this imperfect world, we can expect bad days too. But here’s a different take, an unpleasant day is a bad day but, a terrible day with God is a lesson and a blessing. For the next years to come, we need Him to live with meaning and peace. To accompany us with this goal, here is a New Year prayer collection for intervention.

You are the center of my life now and forever. Amen.” – (Proverbs 22:29)

Amen.” – (Proverbs 11:1)

Declare a Prayer for Education
