A Prayer for the New Year

Lord, we will trust You,
help us as we journey beyond
the familiar and into the unknown.

Give us the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with You.

Christ of the mysteries, can we trust You
to be stronger than each storm in us?

We determine amidst all uncertainty
always to trust.

We choose to live beyond regret,
and let You recreate and redeem
our lives for your purposes.

We believe You will make a way for us
and provide for us.

We will trust in the darkness and
know that our times are still in Your hand.

We will believe You for our future,
chapter by chapter, until all the story is written.

Focus our minds and our hearts upon You,
our attention always on You.

Strengthen us with Your blessing
and appoint to us the task.

Teach us to live with eternity in view.
Tune our spirits to the music of heaven.

Feed us, and, somehow,
make our obedience count for You.
