Mighty God, Giver of life and strength, as the passing year leans into yet another, we pray that your abounding grace will be revealed in the world, as we who claim Him have found it revealed in our own lives through the giving of your Son to be our Savior. May that revelation be made obvious by the way we order our daily living, the simplicity of our trust in your provision, and the generosity with which we greet our fellow creatures; for in you alone do any of us find our breath, and in reaching toward you alone may our search for meaning find fulfillment. These and all of our prayers we offer in the name and spirit of the Christ who journeys into this new year with us. Amen.
