Lord, my Father God, the past year may have been very tough for me and my family. But we thank you for a brand New Year.
We ask You Lord, to bless us our family and friends as we begin this new year with optimism and renewed hope in You.
In the past year, You have seen Lord our failures, saddened by our weaknesses, hurt by our sins and celebrated in successes.
And as the New Year unfolds, let us remember the past year and ask for forgiveness for all our sins and for our actions that may have caused you pain and disappointments.
Forgive us Father, for the many times we have forgotten to pray or to thank you. Help us to realize our mistakes and heed lessons from them.
Lord, help us to focus our eyes on you especially in times of trials. Strengthen us, please give us courage, heal us Lord from all the afflictions that’s making it difficult for us to keep our faith.
We pray that You bless this New Year with Your mercy and presence in all that we do, in Jesus’ name.
