A Prayer for the New Year

Lord, in this New Year which we have begun

May we have enough happiness to keep us agreeable,

Enough trials to keep us strong,

Enough sorrow to keep us human

Enough freedom to keep us happy,

Enough failure to keep us humble,

Enough success to keep us eager,

Enough wealth to meet our needs,

Enough faith to banish depression,

Enough hope to look forward,

Enough love to give us comfort,

And enough determination to keep going
