New Year Prayer For 2024
During the New Year, most of the churches get overflowed with worshipers. As New Year marks the beginning of yet another epic year, people wish to commence it by engaging in devotion. With that said, the prayers to God should not be selfish, but rather be focused on gratitude. Here is the New Year Prayer For 2024 for the Almighty to seek his select blessings.

As the dawn breaks on a new year, let us give thanks for all we hold dear: our health, our family and our friends.
Let us release our grudges, our anger and our pains, for these are nothing but binding chains. Let us live each day in the most loving ways, the God-conscious way. Let us serve all who are in need, regardless of race, color or creed.
Let us keep God of our own understanding in our hearts and to chant God’s name each day. Let us lead the world from darkness to light, from falsehood to truth and from wrong to right.
Let us remember that we are all one, embracing all, discriminating against none.
May your year be filled with peace, prosperity and love. May God’s blessings shower upon you and bestow upon each of you a bright, healthy and peaceful new year.Rev. Marcy Sheremetta
May God make your year a happy one!Author Unknown; Adapted by Debra Mooney
Not by shielding us from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening us to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making our path easy,
But by making us sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from us,
But by taking fear from our heart;
Not by granting us unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping our face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making our life always pleasant,
But by showing us when people and their causes need us most,
and by making us anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to us for the year ahead.
Thank You for new beginnings. What an incredible day this is with a fresh year’s potential stretched out before me. I want to be found faithful this year in each and every opportunity You bring to me. Thank You, Lord, for new beginnings. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.Pastor David McGee
New Year’s Prayer for Peace
No matter how hard we work and struggle to become something in life, at the end of the day, all we desire is peace. A peaceful heart is the most wealthiest and healthiest heart in the world. If you seek peace through your prayer, you have to recite a prayer that is concerned with peace. Sit with a peaceful mind before God and ask him to grant you a peaceful life. Believe that God will restore the peace and you will have a peaceful year ahead. You can use the prayer that we have published down here for you.
At the start of each day, help us to recognize you above all else. Enlighten the eyes of our heart that we might see you, and notice how you’re at work through our lives. Give us the wisdom to make the best choices, fill us with a desire to seek after you more than anything else in this world. Let your Spirit and power breathe in us, through us, again, fresh and new. Thank you that you are greater than anything we may face in our day. Thank you that your presence goes with us and that your joy is never dependent on our circumstances, but it is our true and lasting strength, no matter what we’re up against. We ask that your peace lead us, that it would guard our hearts and minds in you. We ask for your grace to cover our lives this day. We love you Lord…we need you.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.Debbie McDaniel
Lord, in spite of what I see and everything happening, I pray for your complete peace. In my circumstances don’t let me be anxious or troubled. Help me to pray about everything, leaving it all in your hands. As I do let your peace rest in my heart as I trust in you.
In your name I pray,
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
AmenSt. Francis of Assisi
God of all time,
help us enter the New Year quietly,
thoughtful of who we are to ourselves and to others,
mindful that our steps make an impact
and our words carry power.
May we walk gently.
May we speak only after we have listened well.
Creator of all life,
help us enter the New Year reverently,
aware that you have endowed
every creature and plant, every person and habitat
with beauty and purpose.
May we regard the world with tenderness.
May we honor rather than destroy.
Lover of all souls,
help us enter the New Year joyfully,
willing to laugh and dance and dream,
remembering our many gifts with thanks
and looking forward to blessings yet to come.
May we welcome your lavish love.Vinita Hampton Wright; Offered by Douglas Ruschman
May we cast off the small, vindictive god our fears have made.
May the grace and peace of Christ bless us now and in the days ahead.
New Year Prayer for Hope
Hope is like a light in the dark tunnel that leads our way. Without light, we cannot cross the tunnel safely, and similarly, without hope, we cannot lead not even a single day peacefully. Life throws many challenges at us and hope is what drives us forward. Without hope, we are mere lifeless humans living for no reason or purpose. The best way to have hope is to instill faith in God. God won’t cheat you or ignore you. He will listen to you and he will answer all your prayers if you wait with hope.
The Happy New Year Prayer we have here will assist you in delivering a heartwarming prayer to God during the New Year. You can sit in your comfort before God and chant this prayer to him with the hope that all your wishes will come true in the coming year. Show your faithfulness towards him and get ready to accept the double dose of faithfulness from him.
Dear Lord, As the new year begins, I look to You for our hope, joy, and peace. Give me the courage to do all that You ask of me. Please also make me brave to not do what isn’t from You. Show me how to walk in grace and embrace Your love for me even more.
In Jesus’ Name,Holly Gerth
Lord, in this new year help me to remember your promises and who you are. It is because of you that I can have hope because you are faithful. Let your faithfulness be the thing I remember and rely on. Let that be the source of my hope and joy.
In your name I pray,
Eternal God, You gave us the greatest gift: the gift of life.
In the coming year, help us use it wisely.
May we grow in generosity, kindness and forgiveness, hope, faith and love.
AmenRabbi Evan Moffic
Lord, after this hard year help me not to forget your plan for my life. There is hope in your plan, but Father, let it come with me calling upon your name and seeking after you with all my heart. Help me not to look around but look up and remember that my hope is not in what’s around me, but my hope is in you.
In your name I pray,
New Year Prayer For My Family

We pray that you will help us to be mindful of our decisions and actions toward one another; help us to sow unity everywhere we go. May we glorify you today and every day.
In Jesus’ Name we pray,
Dear God, Give us the strength to work on these goals for our family. If these are not the goals You have for us, give us Your vision for the future of our family. Help us to encourage each other to grow rather than criticize. Lord, change us from the inside out to be more like Jesus every day.
In Jesus’ name,
Father God, we come before You today to ask for your protection over our families. Let no trouble fall on them today. Keep them away from accidents. Allow no evil to influence their hearts. Cover them with the precious blood of Christ. Take charge over them so that they do not strike their foot against a stone.
We may not be with our families all the time today, but I trust that You, Lord, are always with them. Keep them safe today and allow them to give glory to You further. Give them peace of mind so that they may not worry about anything. Guard their hearts so that they may only display love instead of hate, anger, or bitterness.
Thank you for bestowing upon our family a new, fresh year. We praise and glorify you for your goodness and grace, and we would like to lift this year up to you. May you be the center of this family this year, as the previous years have been. We ask that you walk with us, O Lord, wherever the year would take this family.
We humbly ask for your protection, Lord God. Please drive us away from harm, and keep your children physically, mentally, and spiritually secure and healthy. May you cover and protect us with your most precious blood.
We would also like to take this opportunity to pray for the strengthening of this family’s bonds. May this year be a time for all of us to have an even deeper and more unified relationship with one another. Give us peace within our hearts and minds, so we may be able to listen to and understand each other better.
We also thank you, Lord God, for all the blessings you’ve given the past year. Thank you for the blessings that have yet to come. We know that you will never forsake us, and we are grateful, no matter what may happen. We give thanks for the shelter above our heads, clothes on our backs, and food on our table.
May you bless this food we are about to receive from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord.
Prayer for New Beginnings
New beginnings are majorly associated with moving on in life forgetting the old, sad things. It is the time we take forward the lessons we learn in life. As we step into the New Year, we must concentrate more on the positive side of the coin rather than sitting and regretting what has already happened. Realization and repenting are a must, but moving ahead in life without repeating the mistakes is the key to seeing new heights in life.
Your New Year’s Eve Prayer for new beginnings should aim at asking God to be with you in challenging times and to keep faith in him no matter what. Pray that you are blessed with enough courage to face the upcoming year and the challenges. Ask him to grant you new beginnings in every aspect of life.

Father, I abandon myself into your hands.Charles de Foucauld, 1858-1916
Do with me whatever you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you.
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
Into your hands I commend my spirit.
I offer it to you with all the love that is in my heart.
For I love you, Lord, and so want to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father. Amen.

In your name I pray,
Lord, I thank You so much for all that You have done for my family and I. Your hand on our lives is so much more than we could ask for. Your blessings are so greatly appreciated.
God, bless to me the new day, Never vouchsafed to me before; It is to bless Thine own presence Thou hast given me this time, O God. Bless Thou to me mine eye, May mine eye bless all it sees I will bless my neighbour, May my neighbour bless me. God, give me a clean heart, Let me not from sight of Thine eye; Bless to me my children and my wife, And bless to me my means and my cattle.A traditional Celtic prayer translated by Alexander Carmichael (1832-1912), compiler of oral traditions in Scotland.

I also pray for the relationships I will form with my colleagues and superiors. May they be filled with respect, collaboration, and mutual support.
Thank You, Lord, for this new beginning. I trust in Your provision and guidance every step of the way.
In Jesus’ name, I pray.
God, our Father, I turn to you seeking your divine help and guidance as I look for suitable employment.
I need your wisdom to guide my footsteps along the right path, and to lead me to find the proper things to say and do in this quest. I wish to use the gifts and talents you have given me, but I need the opportunity to do so with gainful employment.
Do not abandon me, dear Father, in this search, but rather grant me this favor I seek so that I may return to you with praise and thanksgiving for your gracious assistance.
Grant this through Christ, our Lord.
