God – As I begin a New Year please help me find renewed peace, beauty and love within me. At the moment of my creation You ensouled my body with a perfect spirit. In prayer please help me reconnect with that Holy Spirit. May the last day of this year be the ending of disquietude, drama, self-consciousness and not loving myself as You do. For me to find peace in the world, I must first know and contemplate Your heavenly peace through prayer and worship. For me to see the beauty in others, I must not be blind to the beauty You created in me and all Your children. For me to know and share Your love with others, I must fully embrace the faith that the love of Your Son, Jesus, dwells in me and all Your creation. Amen.
If you like this prayer, please share.
