    Dear Heavenly Father,

    As this year begins anew
    I must take to time to renew my commitment to You
    For I know that it's by Your power that I'm still standing
    And I just want to start this prayer with true gratitude
    First of I must thank You for just being God
    I am grateful for all that has come before
    For you have been better then I deserve
    You have kept me safe and secure in Your arms
    And today I stand before You better than bless

    So Father before I ask for that which I think I need
    I ask that You take the wheel and have Your divine way
    Father Guide my footsteps in Your appointed pathway
    Help me to keep my mind totally focused on You today
    For I know now that my aim is to please You alone
    And not tarry upon man's opinions or decisons
    For none but You have a heaven or hell to put me in

    Before this day even starts I am assured there'll be ups and downs
    So I am asking You now to strengthen me for the journey ahead
    So that I may be able to handle all that this day shall hold
    And if for a moment my foot almost slips, lead me back to You
    For this year I'm aspiring to be exactly what you call me to be
    No more or no less for I have learned you know whats best
    So on this year I dedicate myself to doing it the right way
    On my own I know am not capable but it's in you that I am able

    Also Lord help me to realize that whatever comes today
    That it is all working for my good no matter how it looks
    For all thing works for the good of them that love the Lord

    Lastly in this time of declared recession remind me who You are
    For You are a mighty God, and you are not in recession
    So You able to meet all my needs exceeding and abundantly

    And in the precious name of my Lord & Saviour, Jesus I pray.
    AMEN! AMEN! AMEN
