New Year's Eve Prayer for 2011

by Christine Sine

I am sitting in the airport in San Francisco waiting for our flight to Seattle.  The new year is almost here and I have been reflecting on my hopes and expectations for the time that lies ahead.  I find that his prayer, adapted from one I wrote last year, has really helped me to focus.

A new year coming and God is with us

In loving, in caring, in hoping and expecting,

God is with us and never lets us go

God live in us, God live with us, God live through us

God keep us faithful through the days that lie ahead

God keep us caring as we see the pain that fills your world

God keep us serving as we seek to do your will

God live in us, God live with us, God live through us

God keep us loving toward neighbours near and far

God keep us trusting through the uncertainties of life

God keep us sharing from your generous abundance

God live in us, God live with us, God live through us

Amen.
