Prayer for the New Year
The new year, like a new-born child, is placed in our hands as the old year passes away. The days and weeks to come are God’s gift; they carry God’s blessing.
As a blessing we welcome them. Our hope for the year ending is that all that was good in it will remain with us and all that was harmful be left behind.
Bless us, O Lord, and bless the time and seasons yet to come. Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart.
And fill this new year with your kindness, that we may be glad and rejoice all the days of our life. Amen.
