New Year Prayer
Loose, remit and forgive any sins that we have committed during the year that is past,
And keep us free from sin in the new year.
Enlighten us with the Light of Your Truth and Your divine commandments.
Establish in our souls Your Holy Will,
And guide us to every work that is good and pleasing to You.
Guard Your Holy Church with Your divine Grace.
Remember, Lord, our nation.
Train up the youth.
Protect the elderly.
Encourage the faint-hearted.
Gather the scattered.
Bring back those who have gone astray,
And reunite them to Your Holy Church.
Overshadow our land with Your might,
And grant it gentle rain and abundance of the fruits of the earth.
