In this coming new year...

O Lord,

Length of days does not profit me

except the days are passed

in thy presence,

in thy service,

to thy glory.

Give me a grace that precedes,

follows,

guides,

sustains,

sanctifies,

aids every hour,

that I may not be one moment apart from thee,

but my rely on thy Spirit

to supply every thought,

speak in every word,

direct every step,

prosper every work,

build up every mote of faith,

and give me a desire

to show forth they praise;

testify thy love,

advance they kingdom.
