A New Year Prayer

In this New Year,

Do not think about your fears, concentrate on your hopes and dreams.

Do not hold onto your anger and resentments, let go and forgive.

Do not dwell on your frustrations, develop your unfulfilled potential.

Do not concern yourself with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible to do.

Now is the time to put aside your past and to look forward to the future with faith, hope and love.

May the God of your understanding be present in your heart and mind today and every day, this year and always. Amen

Adapted from a prayer by Pope John XXIII
