words

 

New Year’s Prayer:

Our lives are made of days and nights, seasons and years, for we are part of a universe of suns and moons and planets.  We mark ends and we make beginnings and, in all, we praise God for the grace and mercy that fill our days. Remember us, O God; from age to age be our comforter. You have given us the wonder of time, blessings in days and nights, seasons and years.  Bless your children at the turning of the year and fill the months ahead with the bright hope that is ours in the coming of Christ.

You are our God, living and reigning, forever and ever.

Amen.
