A Prayer for Renewed Spiritual Focus in the New Year

2 Mins read

The coming year gives us a chance to hit the reset button on our lives and take a fresh, clean approach to many aspects. One of the areas that can often benefit from a clean slate is our spiritual lives. Even if you’ve been a follower of Christ for many years, perhaps you find yourself struggling to remain focused on the things of God, often becoming distracted by the things going on around you. If that’s the case, ask God to give you a renewed sense of spiritual focus and perseverance in the coming year.

Pray These Verses
Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Psalm 65:11 (NIV)
You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.

Pray This Prayer:

Heavenly Father, as the New Year approaches, I’m asking You to help me do a better job at prioritizing the things that matter the most. Help me to seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness. I know that doing so leads to You adding untold blessings to my life, but that’s not the only reason that I want to do that. Instead,

I want to become more Kingdom-minded so that I can be a better disciple, and so I can further Your Kingdom in this world in the coming year. I know that the New Year provides a new type of hope, and that all my hope is found in the powerful resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ from the dead. Bless everyone in my life in the coming year. I know that You crown the near year with Your bounty, and I earnestly hope to see those that I care about blessed beyond their wildest dreams in the coming year. Help me to be even more focused on You as the New Year comes. In Christ’s name I ask these things, Amen.

Thank God:

Heavenly Father, thank You for watching over me, my friends, and my family over the course of the last year. Thank You for the blessings that I can look back and see and thank You for Your provision in 2022. Thank You for the opportunity to take a clean slate into the coming year. I know that in Your eyes, all the old things are passed away, and all things are made new. Thank You for the hope that a new year provides, and for the fact that I know that You will be with me in the coming year just like You were with me in the previous year. In Christ’s name, Amen.
