Prayers for New Beginnings

A new beginning is a fresh start, a chance to change, an opportunity to grow, and a hope to fulfill. New beginnings can happen at any time in our lives, whether it is the start of a new year, a new month, a new week, or a new day. New beginnings can also happen when we face major transitions, such as moving to a new place, starting a new job, entering a new relationship, or overcoming a challenge.

He is the God of resurrection, who raises us from death to life (Romans 6:4). He is the God of transformation, who renews our minds and hearts (Romans 12:2).
