本週靜思 Thought for the Week:
§ “Grant me the joy that trusting you brings, teach me to appreciate life’s little things.
Help me to strengthen old friendships so true, and make new ones for me to cherish too.”
(賜我因信靠而來的喜樂,教我欣賞生活的細節,助我鞏固已有的友誼,珍惜要來的新知。)
( A New Year’s Prayer, Margaret B, Olson [2002])

Dear Lord, the Rabbit is running fast and now we stand at the threshold of the Year of Dragon. With much expectancy we pray for a lunar new year. Guide me, that I may kinder and wise be, I pray. May I speak, loving words to others as I start anew, to show them your goodness in all that I say and do. I do not know what lies ahead, laughter or maybe a tear. I know you are with me while always walking near. May I learn to willingly and freely forgive, and grant me forgiveness for the life that I live.

May I learn your ways, as in your grace I grow, and become more like you where ‘ere I go. Give me strength to cast aside any grudge I may face, that I may grow stronger, upheld by your grace. Accept me today, dear Lord above. May I trust your wisdom while wrapped in your love. I thank you Lord that I am always in your care that I can come to you in a moment of prayer.

Grant me the joy that trusting you brings, teach me to appreciate life’s little things. Help me to strengthen old friendships so true, and make new ones for me to cherish too. The Year of Dragon is a gift from you to me. In your boundless love, my sinful nature is set free. That I may in awesome wonder know you are near, to give me peace and love, as I begin the new year. Amen.
