A New Year Prayer for 2013

Happy New Year 2013 clock graphic

O God, it is in the name of Christ I pray for all those who may read and share this prayer. Thank you for the gift of life and of a new year in which to live.  May this be a time of grace, a time to grow in faith and love, a time to renew our commitment to obeying and following Your Son Jesus.

May 2013 be a blessing for us, a time for us to cherish our families and friends, a time to renew our efforts at reconciliation, forgiveness and love, a time to embrace our faith more completely.

Please walk with us every day and every hour of this new year that the light of Christ might shine through us. Grant us divine favor in spite of our weaknesses and failings.  Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us.  Grant us the Spirit of compassion, comfort and generosity so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by You O  God. Above all, help us to secure our salvation through repentance, baptism in the name of Christ Jesus and the affirmation of Your Holy Spirit; remembering that yours is the Way, the Truth and the Life. This is our prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.
