Here's the prayer I spoke at church last Sunday to close our time or prayer and meditation:
Great Spirit of Time, Master of our yesterdays, our today, and our tomorrows.
We praise You and Thank You for the year behind us and for the year ahead.
Thank You for another new year and for new chances every day to feel love, and joy, and peace, and to spread love, joy and peace to others.
We leave the irreparable past in your hands, carrying forward the lessons we’ve learned and step out into the unknown space of the new year you have opened for us.
With expectation and eagerness we take up the responsibility of creating the world we wish to inhabit.
