Today I took a journey deep into my soul
Instead, I will ask that Your resolutions be mine.
Your path, my path. Your will, my will.
Let us walk headlong into this new year together.
Shore me up, You who make
all things possible. Grant me hope.
Give me strength. Help me be open
to what may be — fewer hours,
less money, even a change in jobs.
All we can do is remember: With God all things are possible,
even the mending of a broken home.
May others find in us the shelter and the love that we have been so freely given by those who have mothered us
Shine your sunlight on the seeds of life
Creator of the Universe, in your grace you promise us that those who die still live in Your presence. Their spirits have simply been transformed but have not ended. I pray in gratitude and hope for my family, relatives and friends that have gone before me, and for all the dead known to You alone.
I don’t even want to recount
what has happened
in my life this year.
I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.
Be my guide.
Help me to be aware
Of all that lies before, behind and around me.
Embrace these students and teachers with your love.
Heal those who are sick. Restore them to full health.
‘O, may His holy Coming make all your New Year bright!’
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
