New Year Prayer: January 2022
Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, we have crossed from 2021 to a new fresh year. It is only you and your goodness that has enabled us come to this threshold. We remember the terrors of the past year and how Covid repead lives at their peak. But your goodness prevailed and you spared us of any further agony. And even as one year ends and we know the terror has not passed we are comforted to walk in your bosom, knowing you enabled us survive for a good reason. Just as you held the Israelites through the desert teaming with snakes and scorpions, you will uphold us high up, for we are your children! Help us find that reason for life that our lives may have true purpose that brings joy to you. We commit to you 2022 that it might be a year of great harvests. May 2022 be a year of fresh beginnings and breakthroughs. This will be a year of promotions and good health. We cancel all the dark schemes and designs of the enemy on our lives and declare supreme victory. May 2022 be a year of dreams once buried now resurrected. May this be a year of astonishing surprises and amazing blessings. Just as Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me” (Genesis 21:6), in this year all that we longed for will be birthed. The scriptures say, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31), and in this year of 2022, this will be our blessing. We shall cross through valleys lighty, swim joyously through tides, fly over mountains with freedom. The Lord will not tarry but ever come to our rescue and shame the enemy. So we thank you for 2022 and step into it blowing horns with sounds of victory, and gladness melting in our hearts, full of anticipation and expectations of something good and beautiful about to unfold. All this we pray in Jesus’s name!
