A New Year's Prayer from the Valley of Vision

I launch my ship on the unknown waters of this year,

with You, O Father, as my harbour,

You, O Son, at my helm,

You, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails.

Guide me to heaven with

my lamp burning,

my ear open to Your calls,

my heart full of love,

my soul free.

Give me Your grace to sanctify me,

Your comforts to cheer,

Your wisdom to teach,

Your right hand to guide,

Your counsel to instruct,

Your law to judge,

Your presence to stabilize.

May Your fear be my awe,

Your triumphs my joy.
