A Prayer for a Fresh Start

Person praying


I’m excited for a new year, and I want to step into it with boldness and confidence. But if I’m being honest, I’m uncertain of what the year will hold—and that can feel unsettling.

Search me, God, and refresh my heart.

Please help me surrender my expectations for this year. Transform my mind as I draw near to You.

Search me, God, and align my heart with Yours.

As I pursue the plans You have for me, let me remember what You’ve already helped me overcome.

Search me, God, and heal my heart.

Whatever this year holds, I know You hold me. Nothing is impossible for You!

Restore me, God, and make me new.

In Jesus’ name,


Save Prayer
