By Stephen W. Hiemstra
I praise you for your loving presence in my life during this year.
For you alone are holy and stand outside time and space,
and I cannot approach you on my own,
but only through your love, covered by the blood of Jesus and in your willingness to seek me out.
I confess that I have not been the perfect son–
my faith is weak; sins are many; weaknesses seem limitless.
Forgive me; teach me to be a more perfect son.
Thank you for the many blessings of this year–
for work completed, relationships deepened, healings received,
and the opportunity for greater service.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, give me the mind of Christ,
that my heart will be opened, my mind touched, and my hands strengthened
that I may more perceive your will more fully and draw closer to you day by day.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
