Prayer for the Turning of the Year


Thank you for building my faith in 2011 for___________(insert your own experience). Faith is your gift. Unless you strengthen my trust, I will sink into the mud of unbelief. Let my faith, hope, and love increase  in 2012.

Thank you for showing me again, that you are  bigger than __________(insert fear). In 2011, you’ve brought me through so much. I will trust you in 2012 for this area where fear keeps knocking at the door of my heart.

Father, thank you, this year, for convicting me of __________(insert sin). You’ve helped me see the destructiveness of those choices and attitudes, in my own life and in the life of those around me. Thank you for your tough and tender love that saves me from my own self-destructiveness. You are a faithful God. I count on that steadiness. Only you will deliver me from evil and bring me safely to the heavenly home.

Add your own prayers of release and thanksgiving at the turning of the year.

As we end 2011 and begin 2012, let’s release all that has held us back and express our thanks for all that has spurred us on.

May the new year be the best because we turn our hearts more and more fully toward our dear Papa-God.
