Prayer for New Year 2023

Remember us, O God;
from age to age be our comforter.
You have given us the wonder of time,
blessings in days and nights,

and fill the months ahead with

that is ours in the coming of Christ.

You are our God, living and reigning,
forever and ever.

Amen

Give us the kindness to hear with compassion,
     to offer support,
     loving comfort, and care.

Give us the courage to do what is needed,
     the wisdom to choose
     what is right and fair.

Give us the vision to see what is possible.

Give us the faith
     that will help pave the way
     for a present that is hopeful,
     a future that is peaceful—

Give us a heart to bring joy to each day.

Amen.
