Special Post - This Trader's New Year Prayer

Note: The author of the following is unknown as it appeared in last week's service. As always, it relates to both trading and life.

Eternal God, who can make all things new, we humbly bring before you the record of our lives in the year now ended.

Where life has been good to us, do not let us take more of the credit than we deserve.

Where we have been good to others, help us to forget all thoughts of honor and reward.

Where we have fallen short, forgive us, and free us from brooding over what is past.

Cleanse us by your mercy, guide us by your truth, fill us with your love, and lead us forward in your all-conquering hope.

All this we pray in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
