Father, thank you for this new year. As I look ahead I see the horizon far away. This new year is filled with wide vistas, its promise and potential is great. You are the God of new beginnings, of renewal. Be with us, Father, as we live this new year. May we be recharged, rejuvenated, ready to grow, improve, prosper, and succeed. Lead us in this new year, Father. May we be what you desire us to be.
