31 Days of Prayer for the New Year

It’s time to make resolutions, set some big goals, and plan ways to be better in the new year, right? Not exactly!

While I usually make a few resolutions that fly out the window mid-January, this year I realize there is only one area I need to do more and be better at; one area that makes the most difference in who I am and impacts every aspect of my life. My prayer life.

Will you  join me in bowing your heart before the Lord and be in prayer for the New Year?

Will you commit to giving God your all this year, recognizing that no other resolution is as important as the promise to meet the Lord in prayer?

Celebrate a New Year by dedicating it to the Lord in prayer. This free printable prayer guide will help keep your heart and mind focused on God this New Year.

 

The following prayer outline will make it easy to bathe this new year in prayer.

Jan. 1- Pray for spiritual growth & revival in your life and in the life of your family/friends.  May God shape you all and mold you in His image this year.

Jan. 2- Pray for God’s direction in your life as you trust Him to guide your path according to His will.

Jan. 3- Pray that you will listen to God’s voice and learn to discern when He wants your attention.  Pray with an open spirit, believing that God will meet you there in fellowship.

Jan. 4- Pray that you will be obedient to God’s calling as He leads you, know matter how scary it may be to take a leap of faith.

Jan. 5- Pray that God will give you a spirit of self-control; trusting that when you’re tempted, He’s provided you with a way out and the ability to stand firm in Him.

Jan. 6- Pray that you will learn true humility; recognizing that God calls us to serve and put the needs of others before ourselves.

Jan. 7- Pray that you will embrace God’s grace as you accept His forgiveness and salvation; recognizing that the blood of Jesus frees us from guilt and condemnation of our sin.

Jan. 8- Pray that your joy will come from the Lord and not from things of this world.  May you learn the difference between joy and happiness, knowing that the joy of the Lord can be present in times of heartache.

Jan. 9- Pray that you will lean on God for strength, in the good times and in the bad.  May He become your backbone and source of your strength.

Jan. 10- Pray that you will learn to trust God with everything; when life is a breeze and when it is painful.

Jan. 11- Pray for a spirit of gentleness and that God’s love will radiate to others through you.

Jan. 12- Pray that you would hunger for God’s Word and long to spend time in fellowship with Him.

Jan. 13- Pray for the heart of the servant and that God would show you ways in which to serve others.

Jan. 14- Pray that you will be diligent in memorizing Scripture and that you will desire to know His Word.

Jan. 15- Pray that you will be bold in faith and share the Gospel even when it is uncomfortable!

Jan. 16– Pray that you will find rest in the Lord and allow Him to fill you with peace each day.

Jan. 17- Pray that you will be diligent in seeking the Lord in every aspect of your life.

Jan. 18- Pray that you will be faithful in giving even when it means you have to sacrifice.

Jan. 19- Pray that your hidden sin will be brought to light and dealt with.  {You know, the times you told the half-truth or exaggerated a story!}

Jan. 20- Pray that God will change a bad attitude and your heart in those, “I’m gonna lose it” moments.

Jan. 21: Pray that you live with a mission and search for ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Jan. 22: Pray that you will be bold in sharing the Gospel, even in moments when you are afraid.  {For specifics on how to share your faith when you are terrified, visit here.}

Jan. 23: Pray that you will use God as your standard for living, not the world.

Jan. 24: Pray that you will live out of your comfort zone, even as God calls you to take leaps of faith.

Jan. 25: Pray that you will be bold in faith, trusting God in those moments when you can’t see what He has planned.

Jan. 26: Pray that your relationship with your spouse will be strengthened, and that God will be the center of your marriage.

Jan. 27: Pray that you’ll be empathetic to others and be ready to encourage a hurting heart.

Jan. 28: Pray that your relationship with your children will be blessed and strengthened as you teach them to grow in the Lord.

Jan. 29: Pray that you exude Christ in all you do and may His love radiate from your spirit.

Jan. 30: Pray that you’ll be ready to be used by God and open to the plans He has for you.

Jan. 31: Pray that you focus on Christ this year, and passionately pursue a deeper relationship with Him.
