New Year Petition

Heavenly Father, for this coming year, just one request I bring.

I do not pray for riches or earthly possessions.

I do not ask to understand the mystery of your ways or how you lead me.

Only this I ask: teach me to do the thing that pleases You.

I want to know Your guiding voice, to walk with you each day.

Heavenly Father, make me swift to hear and ready to obey.

Thus the year I now begin, a happy year will be, if I am seeking just to do that which pleases You.
