New Year Prayer
Lord of all creation,
Lord of all the years,
Thank you for steering us through the fragmented landscape of two pandemic-riddled years. Here we stand at the beginning of a new year, not knowing what lies ahead. Our only security lies in you, Lord.
Please take our hands and guide us, day by day, into January and beyond. We will not be afraid, Lord because you have promised never to leave us, never to forsake us. And you keep your promises. We are safe.
2022, here we come… expectantly,
In Jesus’ name,
The New Year !
If we put our hand in God’s hand
As we enter this New Year
Not knowing what the future holds
But that our Friend is near
We shall not fear what lies ahead
If He is by our side,
Nor wander from the pathway
If He will be our guide.
The Sinless One from heaven came
To dwell with us on earth,
He sought and bought us with His blood
And offered us new birth.
Now as we travel through this year
He knows the things He’s planned,
So let us trust and know just this –
Our times are in His hands.
As for the future….
O my Father, my God, I am in Your hand;
and may I rejoice above all things in being so.
Do with me what seems good in Your sight;
only let me love you with all mind, soul and strength.
