I found this prayer on a website that I frequent often and thought it was the perfect prayer for me to start the New Year with. I will probably need to say it on a daily basis, so I think I will print it off and post it around my house. I think its really a wonderful prayer and just thought I would share.
I lay all my responsibilities at Your feet. I am now yielding my heart, mind and strength to your awesome power and glory. I desperately need You.
Open my eyes, ears, heart and soul so that I'm not too busy to hear You. Teach me to walk, live and be in the center of Your will for my life. Use me as a blessing in the lives of my children, dear Lord.
Forgive me for my past mistakes, which can be better described as sins. I've been impatient, short tempered, self-righteous and it has made me a difficult woman to love and live with. Lord, starting today, fill me with the fruit of the Spirit: patience, kindness, humility, and gentleness.
Make me a woman who is not easily angered; guard me from being rude or selfish. Fill me with the strength to endure all things necessary. Your perfect love never fails. I praise you, and I thank you for saving me.
