A Prayer for a New Year

For New Year's Day and Starting a New Year


This prayer may be used at the beginning of a new year, and used on New Year's Day (which also happens to be a major feast of the blessed Virgin Mary). Please use this prayer to help you get your life on track for the new year. The prayer connects the new year with the new life we have in Christ.

January paper calendar Father,
We give you thanks
for the arrival of this new year.
You make all things new
through your Son, Jesus Christ.
During this new year,
give us the grace and courage,
to follow him
with all of our hearts and minds,
and to love you
and our neighbors more perfectly.
Through the same Christ our Lord, Amen.
