Prayer for the New Year

I came across this prayer in preparing for our New Years Eve service. I share it with you, praying that you may find some hope and courage in these words. Be blessed and may the God of peace be with you.

Thanks again for your support and for taking the time to read these posts.

Living in grace

"Another year is dawning,
Dear Father let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with thee.
Another year of progress,
Another year of praise,
Another year of proving
Thy presence all the days.
Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness,
The glory of thy face.
Another year of leaning
Upon thy loving breast,
Another year of trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest.
Another year of service,
Of witness for thy love,
Another year of training
For holier work above.
Another year is dawning,
Dear Father, let it be,
On earth, or else in heaven,
Another year for thee" - Frances R. Havergal.
