Day 40 – God, Thank You for the Hope of a New Year
Tonight, you and I will turn the page on another year.
How many times have you and I approached midnight thinking, “maybe next year.”
The dreams and wishes of a New Year’s possibilities.
But you and I have something far more valuable than dreams and wishes.
You and I have hope!
We have God’s unfailing love surrounding us, we have forgiveness for our faults and failures, and we have … Jesus!
So, I’m praying…
God, Thank You for the Hope of a New Year
Father, thank you!
The past year hasn’t developed exactly the way I planned.
Some days have been absolutely beautiful and others have been extremely hard but through them all, good and bad, You have been with me.
You have been faithful.
You have been loving, and kind, and good!
And that gives me hope.
Whatever the coming months hold…
With You, I have the hope of a clean slate, a fresh start … the hope of a new year!
So, Father, I ask You…
Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. Psalm 25:5
Make me strong and courageous, Lord, my hope is in You! Psalm 31:24
Help me to be still and listen, to cease striving, to know You. Psalm 46:10
Help me trust Your plans and purposes for my future are intended for my good. Jeremiah 29:11
Help me faithfully remember, that whatever happens in my life … Jesus is my hope and my future. 1 Peter I:3–6
Thank you for Your blessings too numerous to count.
Thank You for inviting me to come to You with bold prayers.
Thank You for answering my prayers through Your love, mercy, grace, and perfect wisdom.
Father, please comfort and strengthen those of us who have been waiting and praying about something for years. By the power of Your Spirit, defeat discouragement and bless us. May we trust Your will as we come to You with bold mountain-moving prayers. And may we never give up.
Your Word says…
You hear me whenever I ask for anything that pleases You. 1 John 5:14
May my prayers please You.
Thank You for hearing each heartfelt cry.
By Your grace, help me seek You and Your kingdom above everything else…
When I seek Your kingdom above everything else, You will give me everything I need. Matthew 6:33
And help me trust You to give me everything I need one day at a time.
Father, thank you! Because of Your love, I can look at the new year ahead with confident hope. I can boldly come to You with my prayers. I can and I will trust You are who You say You are and You always keep Your promises.
Thank you for the gift of another year. Thank you for the blessing of hope.
Thank you for Jesus, the One who is always and forever the source of my hope. Amen.
