Spring has a special place in my heart. There is so much to be seen and heard in this season of Spring. If we quiet ourselves before the Lord, and if we ask Him to open our eyes and our ears, He will teach us and show us things in this season that will give us fresh revelation from heaven. If we look and listen, the Lord will show us what He is doing in the earth today. Here are 10 prayers for new life and new beginnings this Spring:

Pray for Renewal and Fresh Beginnings
“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? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV)
Father, thank you for a fresh start today. Thank you for the reminder of “renewal” that spring represents to us in the earth. You “spring forth” a new thing! I am excited and expectant of your goodness in this spring season. Thank you, Father! Prepare me for all the new and wonderful things you have for my life. Help me to let go of the old things that hold me back, the things that do not bring me life, the things that keep me living in the past. I will cling to my new identity in Christ! Help me to keep “springing forward” in my journey with you!
Pray for New Revelation of His Truth
“Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.” (Psalm 85:11 KJV)
Spring is an expression of Almighty God speaking through His magnificent creation. There is revelation of truth all around us.
God, I pray for an illumination of your truth in this season. May the truth of your Word become real to me in my life. I pray for revelation from heaven. Help me to absorb your Word in such a way that it grows up from within me – growing and growing so that it flows from out of me and into my life, my family, my church, and into the earth.

Prayer of Thanks for His Love and Leading
"For now is the time, my beautiful one.
The season has changed,
the bondage of your barren winter has ended,
and the season of hiding is over and gone.
The rains have soaked the earth
and left it bright with blossoming flowers.
The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived.
I hear the cooing of doves in our land,
filling the air with songs to awaken you
and guide you forth.
Can you not discern this new day of destiny
breaking forth around you?
The early signs of my purposes and plans
are bursting forth.
The budding vines of new life
are now blooming everywhere.
The fragrance of their flowers whispers,
“There is change in the air.”. . .
For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock.
It was I who took you and hid you up high
in the secret stairway of the sky.
Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice.
How beautiful your eyes of worship
and lovely your voice in prayer.” (Song of Solomon 2:10-14 TPT)
Lord, I thank you for calling me, for wooing me and drawing me nearer to you in the Secret Place. It is in the Secret Place that you awaken me. You bring me into a new day of destiny as you call me to a higher place. Lead me into my purpose and destiny. Lord, you are always there, always encouraging me, always speaking life over me, always speaking your truth over me. Teach me about who I am created to be, Father. Draw me closely into your heart, that I may know your will for my life.

Pray for New Growth and Flourishing
“March winds and april showers bring May flowers." (Old English Proverb)
Father, I thank you for the “March winds and April showers that bring May flowers.” Father, You know what is necessary to prepare me for what You have in store for my life. Help me to receive what You have for me. Prepare me as You prepare the seeds. Grow me strong, nourish and protect me with Your truth so that I can break through the dirt, sprouting into a healthy “flower” that radiates Your glory in the earth.
Pray for a Renewed and Open Heart
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10 KJV)
Father, draw me close to Your heart. I open up my heart to You, and I invite You to search my heart and renew my spirit. Bring me into alignment with your Spirit. Thank you for the work you do in me. Teach me your ways, Father. Reveal to me any area that I am not in agreement with your Word. I pray for a deep revelation and understanding of your truth. I trust you, Father, and I love that I can open my heart up to you. I know that your love is an unconditional, everlasting love.

Pray to Grow in Strength and Hope
“For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.” (Isaiah 61:11 ESV)
God, I praise You! Your seeds of righteousness and praise have been planted in the earth. May I be like a “sprout” in your garden, sprouting up in hope, as I grow in you. Fortify me with the strength as I “burst forth” into who I have been created to be in you. I will praise and honor you, God! May my life bring you glory!
Pray to Remember and Trust in His Promises
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV)
God, I love how you teach us about time and seasons through all of the different seasons we experience here on earth. You have this knack for making things new and beautiful. Thank you for all of the reminders you give us in this spring season. You have set eternity in our hearts. You lead me into transformation, growing me into who you have created me to be, even before the foundations of the earth. I will place my hope in you, for your Word is true. You have promised to complete what you have started in me, Lord! I cannot even imagine all the wonderful things you have in store for me! I trust you, Father.

Prayer of Blessing as a Child of God
“The Lord your God is with you;
his power gives you victory.
The Lord will take delight in you,
and in his love he will give you new life.
He will sing and be joyful over you,” (Zephaniah 3:17 GNB)
“And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’” (Revelation 21:5 ESV)
Father, thank you for reminding me that you take delight in me. I am loved and cherished. Your Word says that you give me new life. You sing joyful words of life over me! I am blessed to be your child. Thank you for loving me with the kind of love that frees me and brings me to life.

Pray to Rejoice in His Grace
“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” (Isaiah 61:10-11 ESV)
Lord, You have graciously clothed me in garments of salvation, and you have covered me with a robe of righteousness. Thank you for your grace. You will complete the work you have started in me. I rejoice in your promises! I praise you and I thank you, Lord!
Pray to Delight in His New Story for You
“Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 TPT)
Jesus, thank you for making me new! You raise me to life, and then you invite me on a grand adventure with you! You redeem my life as I follow you. Jesus, you restore my future! Thank you for never leaving my side as we walk this journey hand in hand. Help me to keep taking steps forward with you.
