Prayer for the New Year

Everloving God it is a new year full of new opportunities

As we ask forgiveness for the past

And make resolutions for the future

May we show your love and live your way

 

May we take time to pause and draw strength

And let our souls catch up

And be refreshed regularly through this year

May we show your love and live your way

 

May we remember the poor and the forgotten

The marginalized and the weak

And find ways to show your compassion

May we show your love and live your way

 

May the healing hope of the gospel be integral to our lives

So that the ways of justice and peace are reflected in us

May we show your love and live your way

 

May we take time to see the beauty of your world –

To see the beauty of trees, flowers, birds and animals –

To cherish them and work for the sustaining of our garden home –

So that we leave it in a good state for generations to come

May we show your love and live your way

 

May our hearts be refreshed by joy, music, creativity, love and hope

So we in turn can bring hope and joy to others.

Throughout this year may we show your love

and live your way.
