A prayer for the New Year

Fr. Brian Cavanaugh, TOR - published on 01/02/22

Guide us, O Lord ...

Grant us, O Lord:

The hope to envision new dreams;

The strength to rise above our limitations,

      our fears and whatever holds us down;

The courage to stand on our own,

      to stretch our imagination

      and to experience being fully human, fully alive;

The faith to live our lives in your image and likeness.

Guide us, O Lord, this new year,

     every way, every day.  Amen.
