Dear God, for this coming year, I have just one request to bring. I do not pray for happiness, or any earthly thing and I do not ask to understand the way You lead me, But this I ask: Teach me to do the thing that pleases You.
I want to know Your guiding voice, to walk with You each day. Make me swift to hear and ready to obey. And thus the year I now begin a happy year will be — if I am seeking just to do the thing that pleases You.
Make us to increase and abound in love one toward another and toward all men, even as we do toward You; to the end we may establish our hearts unblameable in holiness before You. Direct our way to You. May praise Your all holy Name forevermore.
