Prayer for Occasions such as New Years Party etc.
Almighty God, our father, who hast promised that where two or three are gathered together in thy name thou wilt be in the midst of them, help us, we pray, to feel thy presence in this place.
By Wallace Fridy
Thou hast assured us that thou wilt have mercy on us and pardon our sins if only we come to thee in the spirit of humility. We come before thee asking that thou wouldst help us start over again.
Though we come with broken purposes of good and idle endeavors against evil, help us to do better. Purge our hearts from evil thoughts and hard feelings toward those who differ with us, and grant us thy spirit of love which was in thy son, our Lord.
Comfort those in difficult places of decisions and give insight and wisdom to those in authority. Grant us boldness to face clouded situations and faith to trust all truth.
Hear us, a God, as we lift our hearts to thee, for we need thy power and the healing of thy peace, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
