Prayer for a New Beginning


You are full of grace and complete forgiveness. Help me to walk forward from this day. Thank you that right now I can enter into a new dawn, a fresh start, and a new freedom.

You turn the pages of my life and wash each day clean. Help me to feel that I can learn from the past in your safe arms and move on. Thank you that I can write a new story on a fresh page. With you I find vision and hope again.

Thank you for the price that you paid that I always have a chance to begin again with you.

A Prayer of Self-Dedication

Almighty and eternal God,
so draw our hearts to thee,
so guide our minds,
so fill our imaginations,
so control our wills,
that we may be wholly thine,
utterly dedicated unto thee;
and then use us, we pray thee, as thou wilt,
and always to thy glory and the welfare of thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
