New Year Prayer

Oh God, our Faithful Companion, in this new year we pray:

to live deeply, with purpose,
to live freely, with detachment,
to live wisely, with humility,
to live justly, with compassion,
to live lovingly, with fidelity,
to live mindfully, with awareness,
to live gratefully, with generosity,
to live fully, with enthusiasm.

Help us to hold this vision and to daily renew it in our hearts, becoming ever more one with you, each of us, our truest Self.
