New Year Prayer
Today is the 365th day.
Thank you for letting me sail this far.
Thank you for letting me climb the smooth and rocky mountain of the calendar.
Thank you for the legacy of learning I drifted from my daily ridge.
Oh dear Lord, sorry for the times that I become blind, deft and insensitive.
I come before you to say how sorry I am for being adrift.
Oh beloved God, I also wish for others to forgive me.
Their forgiveness is haven of peace for me.
Lord, my life would be a sign of hope after the tic-tac.
I pray for myself and for the people around.
May we have sound body and mind the year round.
I also offer the peace and safety of our world below your feet.
Almighty Father, may Your love shower upon us. Amen.
