Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Prayer for a New Year

Heavenly Father, you are with us now,

Walking alongside us as we move into a new year.

We are eager for all of the uplifting and inspiring things in store,

But fearful, too, about the difficult times that are part of life.

Help to steer our steps in directions that are good.

Give us clarity of heart and mind to see your way,

And courage to act upon it.

Help us to recognize you in the faces of each person we meet,

And  willingness to extend comfort and fellowship.

In illness, help us still find peace,

In pain, helps us still find joy,

And in all, help us to find you and know that

You are here, walking with us, each step of this,

Another new year.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
