Our gracious Father,
As we come to the end of another year
we thank You for the blessings You gave:
for family and friends,
the fellowship with our spiritual family,
the joys of worship,
the satisfaction of work,
answers to prayers,
times to rest and recreate.
We thank You for Your mercies,
for being with us in difficulties,
for protecting us from the Enemy.
When we went through the fire,
we were not burned.
When we went through the water,
we were not drowned or swept away.
When we found ourselves in dark places,
You were there.
Even when we found ourselves walking through the valley of the shadow of death
You were there with us.
We are so grateful for Your compassion,
for Your steady presence,
and Your gentle care.
We thank You for Your promises as this new year dawns:
To never leave…
