A Prayer for the New Year

What shall I ask for the coming year

What shall my watchword be

What should thou do for me, dear Lord

What can I do for thee?


Lord, I would ask for a holy year

Spent in thy perfect will

Help me to walk in thy very steps

Help me to please thee still.


Lord, I would ask for a trustful year

Give me thy faith divine

Taking my full inheritance

Making thy fulness mine!


Lord, I would ask for a year of love

O let me love thee best

Give me the love that faileth not

Beneath the hardest test.


Lord, I would ask for a year of prayer

Teach me to walk with thee

Breathe in my heart the Spirit’s prayer

Pray thou thy prayer in me!


Lord, I would ask for the dying world

Stretch forth thy mighty hand

Thy truth proclaim, thy power display

This year in every land.


Lord, I would ask for a year of joy

Thy peace, thy joy divine

Springing undimmed through all the days

Be thy days of shade or shine.


Lord, I ask for a year of hope

Looking for thee to come

And hastening on that year of years

That brings us home to you.

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن​, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
