A prayer for you on this day…
Lord, for the sins of this past year, we beg you for mercy. Here our cry. For the sins of others who have hurt us this year, we beg you for mercy on their behalf. Here our cry. Grant us your Spirit, to lead us into a heart of repentance and forgiveness.
For the times this year when we have forgotten who we are because of who you are, we ask your forgiveness. Here our cry.
And as we leave this year and begin afresh, we invite you to give us the rest you have promised, provide the abundance of life and vitality that you desire for us, and give us a willingness to do your will. Here our cry.
Deliver us. Amen
And for your listening….
