A Prayer for the New Year

010Come to us, Lord Jesus Christ:
Come to us as we search the scriptures,    seeking God’s  hidden purpose;
Come as we walk the lonely road, needing a    companion;
Come when life mystifies and perplexes us;
Come into our disappointments and unease;
Come at table, when we share our food and  hopes, and, coming, open our eyes to recognise you.   AMEN

           (words by Donald Hilton b.1932)
