50 PRAYER POINTS FOR A NEW BEGINNING
“ Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19.
“ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2cor 5:17.
A new beginning is a conscious decision to walk out of old ways of doing things into positive and better ways of doing them. The bible makes us understand that God, our Father takes delight in doing new things and so also should we His children take delight in the same.
God delights in seeing us turn from our former and unpleasant ways of life to a new beginning. Be it failure in life, business or career, spiritual dryness, sinful life e.t.c, God wants a better and new beginning for us and He will give it to whosoever desires it.
God is ready to give us a brand new beginning if we make a decision to return to him, and He will give us again our enviable place in redemption. Jer 15:19.
Let us look at biblical examples of how God gave His people a new beginning;
Jabez 1chronicle 4:9-10
Jabez had a life and destiny characterized with sorrow and pains. Failure in all areas of life was his lot from childhood because his mother gave birth to him in sorrow. Jabez sought a new beginning, he cried unto God in faith for a new beginning characterized by change of story and God heard Jabez and answered him with a new beginning order of glory and honour. Jabez afterwards became a man whose story became that of success and glory because he sought a new beginning from God and got it.
Do you have a story like that of Jabez?, perhaps you think your life’s woes and troubles are irredeemable and you grope over it at all times. Perhaps you think God can’t even change your story by virtue of all you have done without success.
I bring you a word from God that He is ever ready and willing to give you a new beginning, only if you will cry to him in faith with a connected heart like Jabez did. God will give you that new beginning right now.
Abraham. Genesis 12:1-3,7
At age 75, Abraham was a non entity, no progress, no child, no name, no glory, but God called him and gave him a new beginning at age 75. Abraham walked consciously in this new beginning despite all the trials that came his way and God turned him to a trans-generational blessing in which all believers must anchor their blessings on. “In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”. Gen 12:3.
You may think you are past the youthful age and God can’t make anything of you anymore, so there is no need for a new beginning. I tell you that until you are put in the grave God will use you for something. The path of the just keeps shining until the last day. Prov .418. So seek for that new beginning now and walk it diligently and see what God will make out of you even in your past age.
Jacob Genesis 27:1-30; 31:11-13; 32:26.
Jacob was a sup planter who by hook and crook took his elder brother Esau’s blessings. He became a villain for fear of being killed by his brother Esau. He served Laban, his would be in-law for fourteen years without nothing, tricked to marry the wrong wife and had to serve Laban again for the right wife. He couldn’t fend for his family. All this because he took a wrong step, until he encountered the God of new beginning at bethel and everything turned for him. As a result of the new beginning, God gave him all he was cheated of in the house of Laban and God instructed him to go back to the land where he was born. He made peace with Esau who had wanted to kill him and he then stepped into the Abrahamic blessing handed to him by Isaac.
Do you have a similar story like Jacob? Have you supplanted others and cheated them of what belongs to them. Are you currently suffering from the sins of the past and you think you can’t get out of it? Consciously ask God in a heartfelt prayer of faith for a new beginning and he will give you.
Apostle Paul Acts 8 and 9
Saul was a man who was against the revival fire of the early church, therefore he did all he could to persecute the church and see to its extinction. He did all that zealously, believing it was the right way to go. God arrested him on the way to Damascus to persecute the Christians there. God did give Paul a new beginning, he walked consciously in it, in order not to lose it again and God blessed him mightily. He is one of the greatest of the apostles of Jesus Christ and wrote most of the epistles of the new testament.
Are you one of those who go about persecuting the church of Christ today, saying all manner of things about God and His people. Attacking everything good just because you are not a part of it. You live all manner of sinful life and you think you can’t start a new life. God will give you a new beginning as He did to Paul. Only believe and ask and you will begin to walk in that newness of life.
All the biblical examples have a similar story of walking away from the past to enter a new beginning. Salvation is the first path to enter this new beginning. If a man be born again, old things pass and all things become new. 2cor 5:17. You must be born again and remain so to enter this new beginning.
