Catholic New Year Prayer
A Prayer for the New Year
Lord, as I begin this new year, help me to let go of past hurts, frustrations, and guilt
so I may enter the new year free of these things.
Please forgive me for my sins and help me to forgive others I need to forgive.
May those I have sinned against forgive me.
Please help me to love others as you have called me to love them, as creatures made in Your diving image.
Help me to love myself as you call me to love myself, too, as one made in Your divine image.
May I not turn my back on someone in need.
May I be a true friend to those I in need.
With Your help and grace, may I be the best person I can be.
May I live out my vocation with love and devotion.
May my life be a light in the world instead of a darkness.
May I always turn to You in sorrow for comfort, in pain for healing, in joy so we may celebrate together.
May I never lose my love for You, but increase it each day.
May You bless me, Lord, this year and always and help me to live the life You have called me to live-one full of love and adventure, wholly devoted to You.
