I first of all praise you heavenly Father for being close to me this year. Through the joys and disappointments of this year I am glad you were with me.
I ask that your kingdom would go forward next year and if I can be of service to that end I am available to serve, I ask for your will to be done in all things.
I ask that you give me the things I need to live and to prosper as you see fit.
I have many people to forgive and I forgive them all as I recognize that life is too short to be ruled by bitterness. I ask for your forgiveness for where I have failed or fallen short.
I ask that you keep me free from temptation and that you protect me and mine from the evil one.
I give all things back to you that you have blessed me with this last year and commit to doing the same this coming year – all the power, all the glory and all the kingdom belong to you. Thank you for being a good God that cares for the world you created.
