A Prayer for New Year

Come Holy God,
who has been with us this past year,
who has laughed with us, and cried with us, 
who has cradled us in goodness and love.
Bless us with a joy to continue to seek you.


Come Holy God,
As we stand on the cusp of new beginnings
As we stand with eyes fixed on the future,
As we stand with open hands,
welcoming you to come with us,
Bless us with a desire to continue to seek you.


Come Holy God,
In anticipation of what may be waiting for us,
In anticipation of what memories we will make,
In anticipation of the surprises that await us.
Bless us with wisdom to recognise you
in the new days, weeks and months ahead.
