Welcome for a New Year

Welcome 2016!

I greet you with joy in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!

I welcome the rising sun, the splendour of day, and the snowy path laid out before me. I welcome the footsteps of the Good King, knowing He is going on before and I have only to tread where He has trod.

I welcome the worship and work of each new day, petitioning the King for strength and joy to pursue His way.

I welcome the ones He has given me, to whom I belong and to whom I am committed, petitioning for grace and compassion to walk humbly and single-heartedly with them in our frailties.

I welcome the hope of morning, the promise of rest, and the surety of His perfect faithfulness, petitioning for eyes to remain fixed on the One whose goodness calls me forward.

I welcome the wideness of open skies, the wonder of unfolding day, and the wildness of holy mountains.

I welcome joy, no matter how it comes to greet me.

I welcome this day, this year, my place in it, and my God over it.

  1. This reminds me of St. Patrick's so-called "breastplate" - listing every possible thing you can think of. Happy New Year!
