A New Year’s Prayer

May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
     and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

Heavenly Father,

When it seems that we are actually, finally at our wit's end,

And we've seen the end of all that we can do,

That is when you are at your nearest, your most miraculous, your best.

 Sometimes, the road we trudge seems destined

To be dusty and desolate forever.

And yet, just around the corner, just over the next hill,

We see new life, we see hope.

I pray for this hope for those who need it most. 
May you bring them what they need,

That they may once again be dancing on this earth.

 

And as the dawn breaks on a new year,

Let us give thanks for all we hold dear:

Our health, our family and our friends.
May your year be filled with peace, prosperity and love.

May God's blessings shower upon you

And bestow upon each of you a bright, healthy and peaceful new year.


Amen.
