New Year Prayer

New Year Prayer
By: Charlotte Anselmo

Thank you, Lord for giving me
The brand new year ahead.
Help me live the way I should,
As each new day I tread.
Give me gentle wisdom,
That I might help a friend.
Give me strength and courage,
So a shoulder I might lend.
The year ahead is empty,
Help me fill it with good things.
Each new day filled with joy,
And the happiness it brings.
Please give the leaders of our world
A courage born of peace
That they might lead us gently
And all the fighting cease.
Please give to all upon this earth,
A heart that's filled with love,
A gentle happy way to live
With your blessings from above.
