New Year’s Prayer – A Christian Prayer Of Surrender And Obedience

I ran across this and thought it was beautiful, had to share it.  As this is what my prayer is for the new year, my resolutions are short, to have a closer walk with the Lord, and to let my light shine brighter than ever before.

Lord, this year I want to change,

and I’ve said that in the past.

but now my prayer is different

’cause I understand at last.

I wanted my own way before,
I ignored your loving plans.
But now I’m putting everything
into your nail-scarred hands.

I promise to obey you
out of gratitude and love.
I won’t be giving orders
to my Father up above.

I finally realize the truth
and so I’ve changed my prayer.
The safest place for me to be

is in your gentle care.

Please be my shepherd, Jesus,
that’s all I ask of you.
In good times and in bad this year,
Take my hand and lead me through.
