My Mother's New Year Prayer

I am trying to keep this one close to me, as I anticipate these changes and wrestle with fear and uncertainty.

"For all the possibilities ahead of us in this new year, make us thankful, O Lord. Give us wisdom, courage and discernment in the face of so much chaos, despair and fear. Help us to see how, in our circumstances, we can contribute toward peace, faith and love; and give us the will to translate our desires into actions."
