New year prayer for peace

It doesn’t matter if you had a particularly difficult year, there is always something to be grateful for. So give thanks to God for bringing you to the end of another year.

Be grateful for the opportunity to hope and dream for a better new year while you’re still alive. God is still with us and will always be with us, no matter how horrible things have been this year.

Things may appear hopeless, the storm may be the darkest it has ever been, and you may feel as if you are done and should give up.

But No, you’re not done yet. Why? Because you aren’t alone. You’re not on your own, after all. There’s someone with you who is more powerful and capable.

There’s no storm too big for him to handle. There is no behemoth he can’t overcome. There is no fire too hot for him to step into and pull you out of. So have faith and know that peace, favor, and victory are on their way to you.

God is going to make a difference in your life. So be glad. Be grateful. Have faith in God and trust that He is at work in your life.

Let go of any grudges or animosity from the previous year as we begin the new year. Forgive and welcome the new year with open arms. It’s important to remember that forgiveness isn’t about the other person.

Forgiveness liberates you. It is good for your health, mind, and spirit. Forgiveness creates a new route to serenity, allowing you to persevere and move forward. As you welcome the new year, forgive anybody who has caused you any hurt or pain.

May the Lord be with you!
