A Prayer for the New Year

Loving God,


Whether I leave behind a year of joy or trials and difficulties,

I pause to Give Thanks,


Thank you for being with me 

every day of every year - especially this year.


Thank you for making all things NEW

and for giving me the grace of Fresh starts

and new beginnings.


Remind me of your presence in the days to come,

even when I feel pushed and rushed by life's journey.


Help me to be Glorified in you and the Holy Moments of my life this Year.
