(adapted from a prayer by heathercking.org)
Let us talk to God, let us pray,
God, whether we put behind us a year
of joy or a year of difficulties,
We will stop to give thanks.
Thank you for being with us every day of the year.
Thank you for making all things new
And for giving us the grace of fresh starts
And new beginnings.
Remind us of your presence in the days to come,
Even when we feel pushed and rushed by busyness.
Keep reminding us that you are present in
our lives throughout the coming year.
