Precious Father, thank You for another year.
Thank You for the year just past
For the joys and sorrows
For the laughter and tears
For the lessons I learned and Your patience in teaching me
For the people whose lives I touched and for those who touched mine
For answers to prayer and the privilege of coming to You in prayer
For a year filled with Your presence.
(Jonathan Dukes in Prayers For Every Need, p. 236)
