As you begin this new year, here is a simple prayer to help you lean on God – all-wise, all-loving and changeless in these things.

Grant, O Lord,
that as the years change,
I may find rest in Your eternal changelessness.
May I meet this new year bravely,
secure in the faith that,
while we come and go,
and life changes around us,
You are always the same,
guiding us with Your wisdom,
and protecting us with Your love. Amen.
—William Temple (1881–1944)

Happy new year !
