Prayer For A New Year

Oh, sovereign Lord,

Thou who hast already seen and known every moment of this new year more fully and deeply than any of us ever will,

Grant unto my soul in its moments Thy eternal peace.
Grant unto my heart thy boundless joy.

Grant me thy matchless power --

in every searing pain
in every insidious temptation
in every clamoring doubt
in every momentary windfall
in every seizing fear,
in every groundless boasting.

Oh, sovereign Lord,
Grant unto my soul in its moments thy eternal peace.
