Bible verses for hope of a new and good future

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”
(Jeremiah 29:11)

Thank you God for your plans for me.
Thank you for prosperity.
Thank you for my hope and my future.

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”
Isaiah 43:18

Let me forget the old things.

The past has gone.

God, you move in a new way in my life.

I feel Love spring up in me.

And so it is. AMEN

“And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”

And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”

So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.

And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.”
Minnie Louise Haskins

New Year prayer audio -
for a sense of connection and Oneness

Please find on the audio player below a New Year prayer which I taped on New Year's Eve, 2020.

I started and help to run a Facebook group for prayer for people with chronic fatigue syndrome-ME.
This prayer was recorded for that group.

This New Year Prayer is a circle prayer - it invites you to see yourself as sitting in a circle with others.

I refer to a central high place – a place in which we are connected with Oneness, connected with God, and connected with all others.

You can listen and include anyone you choose in the circle of people you see in your mind.

Dear God,
My New Year prayer is that I take time each day to cultivate my sense of connection with you.
Please guide me. AMEN

Prayer Audio

The prayer audio below includes the following words:

Dear God, Light, Love, Peace,

we affirm our connection with You and with each other.
We give thanks for this group.
We see the blessing of our prayer going out and touching everyone now, and the power of our joined minds keeping the door open to the possibility of greater health
but even more importantly an open door to Your Love, Your Light, Your Peace.

New Year Prayer and quotes for those living with the chronic illness ME/CFS

This New year prayer is contributed by Sally-Anne

Lord, as we approach the start of the new year we may worry about what it might bring. Reassure us with your loving presence that whatever we might experience in the coming days, months and years will not be more than we can bear

and that you will always be with us when we pray.

We pray for our community:
those who have little energy,
those who are in despair,
and for their carers.

We pray for all especially if the New Year fills them with doubts and fears.

May they be aware of your presence holding them and encouraging them towards healing and wholeness. Amen

New Year prayer from the spiritual text, A Course In Miracles

"This is the time in which a new year will soon be born from the time of Christ.
I have perfect faith in you to do all that you would accomplish.
Nothing will be lacking, and you will make complete and not destroy.
Say, then, to your brother:

I give you to the Holy Spirit as part of myself.
I know that you will be released, unless I want to use you to imprison myself.
In the name of my freedom I choose your release, because I recognize that we will be released together.

So will the year begin in joy and freedom.
There is much to do, and we have been long delayed.
Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening.
Make this year different by making it all the same.
And let all your relationships be made holy for you.
This is our will.
(T-15.XI, A Course In Miracles New Year)

Here is an adapted version of the above, said from the perspective of 'I'.

This is the time in which the New Year will soon be born from the time of Christ.

Jesus, I hear that you have perfect faith in me to do all that I wish to accomplish.
Nothing will be lacking,
I will not destroy but make complete.

I see my brother in my mind's eye. I say:
'I give you to the Holy Spirit as part of myself.
I do not wish to imprison myself.
In the name of my freedom I choose your release,
because I recognise that we will be released together.'

Holy Spirit, I give myself to you.
In the name of my freedom, I choose my release by giving myself to you.

And so, this New Year begins in joy and freedom.

There is much to do, and I have been long delayed.
As this new year is born, I accept the holy instant.
I take my place in the great awakening.

I make this year different by making it all the same.
I let all my relationships be made holy for me.
Jesus, I join my will with you in this intent.

Bible verse as a New Year prayer to overcome worry and move towards trust

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.

Are you not much more valuable than they?

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
And why do you worry about clothes?
See how the flowers of the field grow.
They do not labour or spin.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith?

So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6 25–34, Bible verse worry to trust

Job’s story of new hope and recovery from distress

‘You gave me life and showed me your unfailing love. My life was preserved by your care’ (Job 10:12 NLT).

we 'will surely forget our trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by’. Amen (Job 11:16)

‘The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before’ (Job 42:10 KJV)

New Year Prayer Hymn

The words of the hymn, Morning has Broken, always put me in mind of a new start.

Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rains new fall, sunlit from Heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

The words hold a place that we can experience every day as a new day, seeing the world through new eyes.

New Year Prayer from Tina:

Lord God, as we set out into this new year,

please show us what you want us to do.

Lead us to your abundant joy.

Thank you for your ever-present love and strength. Amen.

Blessings to you all for the New Year.
