Holy Father,


God of our yesterdays,
our today, and our tomorrows.
We praise You for Your unequaled greatness.
Thank You for the year behind us and for the year ahead.



Help us in Your new year, Father,
to fret less and laugh more.
To teach our children to laugh
by laughing with them.



To teach others to love
by loving them.
Knowing, when Love
came to the stable
in Bethlehem,
He came for us.



So that Love could be with us,
and we could know You.
That we could share Love with others.



Help us,Father,
to hear Your love song
in every sunrise,



in the chriping of sparrows
in our backyards,
in the stories of our old folks,
and the fantasies of our children.



Help us to stop and listen
to Your love songs,
so that we may know You
better and better.



We rejoice in the world
You loved into being.
Thank You for another new year
and for new chances every day.



We pray for peace,
for light, and for hope,
that we might spread them to others.



Forgive us for falling short
this past year.
We leave the irreparable past
in your hands,
and step out into the unknown new year
knowing You will go with us.



We accept Your gift
of a new year and we rejoice
in what's ahead,
depending on You to help us
do exactly what You want.



I say it again, we rejoice!
In Jesus name,

Amen.






And all these blessings shall
come on thee, and overtake thee,
if thou shalt hearken unto
the voice of the
Lord thy God.

Deuteronomy 28:2
