Title: Beautiful Prayer for the New Year Fr. Lasance
Post by: Miseremini on January 09, 2018, 10:11:25 PM
From Father F.X. Lasance's  "Prayer Book for Religious" page 999.

O My God ! another year is added to the number of those for which I am accountable to Thee.  Well may I recount them all in the bitterness of my soul, for they have been filled with infidelities and ingratitude.  Thou hast granted them to me to know, to love, and serve Thee, and every one of them brings to my recollection numberless omissions of these essential duties.  Have mercy on me, O Lord, have mercy on me, for I have no hope but in Thy mercy.  It now offers me this new year to repair the evils and retrieve the losses of those which are past.  Grant, O Lord, that it be entirely consecrated to Thy glory, sanctified by Thy love, and wholly employed in Thy service. Amen
