Prayer for the New Year

Thank you for bringing us to this new year,
a time to look forward.

Help us not to be weighed down
by the disappointments and frustrations of the past,
or distracted by possible futures,
but to give thanks for the blessings in our lives now.

Lead us to continue our journeys with courage,
living each day as fully as we can.

Each hour, each day,
has the potential to bring us closer to you,
in gladness or in grief.

We cannot see what the year will bring us,
but in the Christ child we know that you share our lives with us.
May we trust in the strength of your encircling love for us,
as we venture into this new year.

Be thou a bright flame before me, 
Be thou a guiding star above me, 
Be thou a smooth path below me, 
And be a kindly shepherd behind me, 
Today,  tonight, and forever.
