Powerfully Prophetic Declarations to Speak over the New Year


The following are prophetic Biblical Christian declarations to decree over our lives for an amazing 2018. Proverbs 18:21 reveals that death and life are in the power of the tongue. Spoken word is so powerful that the Bible even says that God spoke the world into existence.

Job 22:28 says “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”


When we use our words correctly, our lives change through the Lord in more powerful ways than we can imagine.

I declare and decree that this is a year in which God has heard our cries for mercy and things are turning around.


“I love the Lord, because He has heard
My voice and my supplications.
2 Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.” Psalm 116:1–2

I speak the opening of heavenly gates and everlasting doors that will bring us into deeper relationship with You, God.

“Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.” Psalm 24:7

We decree a time of renewing our strength and soaring in Your presence God.

“But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

We declare that the times of spiritual hopelessness and disappointments have come to an end. This is a year of sudden good breaks.

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12

Make us ministers of reconciliation to offset injustices and bring healing to people everywhere we go.

“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18

We agree with the new things that will bring spiritual refreshing to those who have been in the wilderness.

“Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18–19

We declare a new day, as God’s light shines on and through us.

“Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you” Isaiah 60:1

Help us to be stretched in order to receive all that you have for us.

“Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.” Isaiah 54:2

Teach us to love, as You love us, God.

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Matthew 22:37–40

Give us wisdom to help those who need the love of God.

“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’[a] and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17

Lord please grant us a forgiving heart and keep us from judging or condemning others. We will give even as you have given to us.

“Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:37–38

As we abide in you, we gladly receive any pruning needed in our lives in order for us to remain in You, Lord.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.” John 15:5–6

We decree that we will step into a place this year to have greater authority to see answers to the things we ask for in prayer.

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” John 15:7

Lord, pour water into our dry places, bring every place that’s in a wilderness into alignment with you. We are in agreement with God’s promises to pour out His Spirit on our descendants and declare that we will see them grow fast and strong in you.

“For I will pour water on him who is thirsty,
And floods on the dry ground;
I will pour My Spirit on your descendants,
And My blessing on your offspring;
They will spring up among the grass
Like willows by the watercourses.’
One will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’;
Another will call himself by the name of Jacob;
Another will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’
And name himself by the name of Israel.” Isaiah 44:3–5

Open opportunities for us to see who needs that deeper touch. Use us to bring healing to people who have been wounded and rejected.

“21 So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.’” Luke 14:21
