A Prayer for the New Year
O God of new beginnings and wonderful surprises, Thank You for the gift of a new year.
May it be a time of grace fro me, A time to grow in faith and love, A time to renew my commitment to following your son, Jesus.
May it be a year of blessing for me, A time to cherish my family and friends, A time to renew my efforts at work, A time to embrace y faith more fully.
Walk with me, please, in every day and every hour of this New year, That the light of Christ might shine through me, In spite of my weaknesses and failings.
Above all, may I remember this year that I am a pilgrim on the sacred path to You. Amen.
