A Prayer for New Year 2015

by Christine Sine
As this new year dawns .001

A couple of days ago I posted a liturgy for Holy Name day to remind us that the events of Jesus life should be part of what sets the rhythm for our year. However, like most of us the rhythm of my life at this time of year is set more by the coming of the calendar new year. This is a great time to focus and restore our faith, to think about the potential that the new year holds. Pray with me for the coming year that it will be one in which each of us will reach God’s intended potential for us.

I have already posted this prayer in preparation for the coming of the new year and am also posting today’s prayer a little early for many of us, but wanted to make sure that it was up in time for my family and friends in Australia and New Zealand to use it for the new year if they wish.

Lord as this new year dawns, welcome.

Welcome into our world

and into our lives.

Sow light in our hearts.

Let it germinate and grow

and bring forth fruit.

Birth in us something new.

Let your peace take root.

Nurture it,

encourage it to flourish.

Let your love blossom

with the fragrance

of patience and compassion.

Let it strengthen

forgiveness and understanding.

Let your life emerge

in us, through us, around us,

bringing newness to all it touches.

Thanks Mary. I always enjoy writing these prayers and as you can imagine this one came out of my own reflections and meditations on the end of the year and the coming year. Many blessings on you and your ministry. You are a great encouragement and inspiration to me
