A NEW YEAR PRAYER
Length of days does not profit me except the days are passed in Your presence, In Your service, to Your glory.
Give me a grace that precedes, follows, guides, sustains, sanctifies, aids every hour, that I may not be one moment apart from You, but may rely on the Spirit, to supply every thought, speak every word, direct every step, prosper every work, build up every mote of faith, and give me a desire to show forth Your praise; Testify of Your love, advance Your kingdom.
