Prayer Topic #15:

A Prayer for a New Year in Christ


Scripture Reading:

Colossians 1:15-23, II Corinthians 5:17


Reflections of the Heart:

The Feast of Trumpets is the celebration of a new year in Christ. It is a time of new beginnings for God’s people. No more New Year’s resolutions or making promises to yourself that you just can’t keep. Now, ask God to give you spiritual insight into the plans and purposes that He has for you.  God has a future and a hope for you. Use a journal to remember the things that God has spoken to you in the past year and the things He is saying to you now. Write down what He has promised you, then you will know your future. What God speaks, He guarantees will come to pass. Let’s rejoice and be glad as we prepare for new beginnings.


Scriptural Prayer:


Glorious Father, Thank You for being the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank You for being the Great I Am. Thank You for the Feast of Trumpets. We praise Your name! Your name is blessed both now and forever. Everywhere, from east to west, people will praise Your name. Lord, You are above the nations; Your glory is higher than the heavens. No one can compare to You; You are the God enthroned on high. You stoop to look down on earth. Lord, not unto us, but to Your name belongs all the glory for Your unfailing love and faithfulness. We look forward to this new year in Christ.


Gracious Father, we will prepare ourselves for this season of rest, worship, prayer, fasting, reconciliation, and thanksgiving. We recognize that it is You who works in us to give us the desire and the power to do what pleases You. As a Church Family, we will seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness, and we believe that You will give us everything we need. We declare that Your timing is perfect. As a part of the Feast of Trumpets, You have directed us to reconcile with persons who may have wronged us during the past year. We commit to mending our relationships. Father, You have begun a good work in us and we are confident that You will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.


As I review the past year, I am thankful for:



Father, in this New Year I will reconcile with:



List the things you did well in the past year: 


Holy Spirit, help us to remember what God has done for us during this past year. Remind us to share our testimonies of His goodness and faithfulness, so that we give glory to our Father. Spirit of the Living God, fall fresh upon us in the new year. As we enter the High Holy Days, help us to look inward, reflecting on the victories and mistakes of the past year. Please continue to reveal Yourself and Your ways to us. Use us to perform Your wonderful works. Direct us according to God’s perfect plans and purposes. Reveal any acts of disobedience that are displeasing to the Lord. Give us the patience to trust and wait on You and help us all to embrace this new year in Christ.


Holy Father, forgive us for our past sins (confess your sins as you remember them). Forgive us for not allowing You to fulfill Your plans in our lives during this past year. Forgive us for not acknowledging the Feast of Trumpets in the past. Forgive those who continue to hold onto grudges and past offenses when they should seek forgiveness and go on with their lives. Lord, we were not taught about Your feasts while growing up. We know that people perish for the lack of knowledge.    Please forgive the body of Christ for rejecting Your feasts during the early centuries of the Christian faith. Forgive us for jumping to conclusions too quickly about what You are doing or not doing in our lives. Forgive us for not acknowledging You in all our ways and for leaning to our own understanding.  Forgive us when we don’t rearrange our busy schedules to include You. We will not take past offenses into the new year. Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)


Righteous Father, help us to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.


Lord, You are faithful and true. You are the Sovereign One, the King eternal, the Author and Finisher of our faith. You are subject to none, yet all are subject to You. Yours is the greatness, power, glory, victory, and the majesty; for everything in the heavens and on earth belongs to You.  Lord, this is Your Kingdom, and we adore You as the one who is over all things.  In Jesus’ name, amen.
