Pray that God’s Blessings be upon us in this New Year.

Father let me dedicate all this year to thee O Immortal Lord God, who inhabits eternity, and has brought us to the beginning of another year, Pardon, we humbly beseech thee, our transgressions in the past, bless to us this New Year, and graciously abide with us all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him. Matthew 2.2.
Eternal Lord God, who by a star led wise men to the worship of Jesus, guide by your light the nations of the world, that all may see and know your glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever. Amen. Wise men seeking Jesus travelled from afar, Guided on their journey by a beauteous star.
He is more than near us, if we love Him well; For he seeketh ever in our heart to dwell. (The Rev’d Thomas East.)

The Prayer of St. Theresa
Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing frighten you. All things are passing away – but God never changes. Whoever has God lacks nothing. God alone suffices. Amen.
Tell out my soul, the greatness of the Lord!
Unnumbered blessings, give my spirit voice ; tender to me, the promise of his word; in God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice.
Tell out my soul, the glories of his word!
Firm in His promise, and his mercy sure, Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord to children’s children and for ever more! (From Luke 1, 46-56)
Go forth into the world in peace, be of good cheer, hold fast that which is good, Render to no one evil for evil, Love and Serve The Lord, and the Blessings of God will be with you.
Amen, Amen and Amen.
