Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

A New Years Prayer

Dear Lord, in this coming year please grant me to have:
  • A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
  • A work to do which has real value, without which the world would be the poorer;
  • A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
  • An understanding heart;
  • A sense of humor;
  • Times for quiet, silent meditation;
  • A feeling of your presence in my life;
  • The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
  • And the wisdom to recognize them when they come.
Praying in faith in the name of Christ our Lord.
