We would like to share this reflection with you in the hope that it inspires you in some way.

New Year's Prayer

Thank you Lord for giving me
The brand new year ahead
Help me live the way I should


As each new day I tread
Give me gentle wisdom
That I might help a friend.
Give me strength and courage
So a shoulder I might lend


The year ahead is empty
Help me fill it with good things
Each new day filled with joy and happiness it brings.
