Our almighty and everliving God, we thank you for this another year, 2014.. for giving us everyday the opporunity to enjoy the gift of life.
Lord, there are times when we put you aside out of our busy days. These days when we are too overwhelmed over material wealth and earthly desires. Even all these acts result to our abuse to our environment and disregard to human dignity.
We firmly ask Lord that despite our human frailties, you will not give up on us. And that your love and mercy will overshadow us always in this life that You so richly provide.
We lift to you all our fears, anxieties, and our weaknesses. Guide us always with your wisdom so that our actions will lead to knowing and doing what is just and right.
Unite all your people Lord, that we may be in one in making this world a better place for us today and the next generations. Change our values, our attitudes towards our family, our workplace, our society into what is pleasing to you, where everything is motivated with humility and love.
This we pray with our Mother Mary and your son, our saviour, Jesus Christ. AMEN.
