A New Years Prayer
Asking God for divine help as we begin a new year

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
January 5, 2018

As a new year breaks upon us,
we anticipate your grace.
Fresh as dew with each new morning,
You are present in this place.
Distance us from shame that haunts us.
Draw us closer to Your heart.
Help us glimpse the dawn before us
with the joy of brand new starts.

As this new year breaks upon us
we anticipate your power
to sustain us in our living
day-by-day and hour-by-hour.
Lord, infuse us with Your Spirit.
Fill us with the faith to trust
when our doubts deter our progress.
When resolve all turns to dust.

As this new year breaks upon us
we anticipate your plans
rooted in a heart of mercy
we don't always understand.
Please protect us as we venture
into vistas yet unknown.
Guardian of our tomorrows,
guide us from your sovereign throne.

*this poem can be sung to the tune "Ode to Joy"
