A Prayer for the New Year
© Loyola Press
God, thank you for a new year. May everyone in our family be willing to begin anew with a clean slate. We know that you are always ready to forgive us. Help us to be willing to forgive ourselves and to forgive one another.
As we begin a new year, remind us of our truest values and our deepest desires. Help us to live in the goodness that comes from doing what you want us to do. Help us to put aside anxiety about the future and the past, so that we might live in peace with you now, one day at a time.
Through Christ our Lord, born of the Virgin Mary, living and reigning with You and the Holy Spirit, on God for ever and ever. Amen.
On behalf of the clergy and staff
of the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Augustine,
may you and yours have a
Blessed and Happy New Year.
