God of this New Year, I am walking into mystery.
I face the future, not knowing what the days and months will bring or how I will respond.
Be love in me as I journey from the familiar and into the new.
Deepen my faith to see all of life with Your eyes.
Fill me with hope and a deep trust in You.
Thank You for the treasure of life and the opportunity for education, growth and meaningful work.
Thank You for the gift of being able to rise each day with the assurance of Your presence.
God of this New Year, I praise you. Amen.
