Prayer for the New Year

I posted this prayer last year on social media. May this be the prayer of all our hearts as we enter into 2017.

“Lord as this new year dawns,
welcome.
Welcome into our world
and into our lives.
Sow light into our hearts.
Let it germinate and grow
and bring forth fruit.
Birth in us something new.
Let your peace take root.
Nurture it,
encourage it to flourish.
Let your love blossom
with the fragrance of patience and compassion.
Let it strengthen forgiveness and understanding.
Let your life emerge
in us, through us, around us,
bringing newness to all it touches” (Celtic Prayer).
