Prayer for the New Year


Prayer for the New Year

Begin the New Year by standing at the threshold of this new moment & offering it to God.

In the year ahead,
Lord of New Beginnings,
Stretch our souls
And move us
Into new awareness
Of the human family,
Their needs and their longings.

Make these into
our needs, our longings
So we move more confidently
From our small selves
To a deeper sense of community
Where our resolutions reflect
Our interdependence.

Help us recognize the
Possibilities you have offered
To us as a people,
So we can commit to practice
The Hope that happens
When we gather gratefully
In your Name and we hold up to you
This fragile, precious world.

Grant us all the grace
In this year ahead
To sow the seeds of justice
And to gather peace in our day.
Greetings for the New Year
To all the people of Bantry Parish, at home and abroad, their families and friends,
May beautiful moments and happy memories surround you with joy in 2013
May the new year refresh your spirit and bestow upon you
new inspiration, love, peace, prosperity, happiness and good health
We celebrate new beginnings, goals & plans, hopes & dreams,
but most of all
A New Year of Peace, Joy & happiness.
