Good and gracious God, a new year of grace is upon us, giving us impressions of crisp beginnings new goals, a fresh sense of hope.
Though we cling to our own expectations for the year ahead, we know you alone are the sovereign of our future, Lord of our lives, and the source of whatever good we may do.
We thank you, O Lord, for the gift of the days and weeks you have entrusted to us. Teach us to be good stewards of our time ahead, that we go about our days keeping you at the center of our lives.
