A Benediction

May the Lord grant you a zest for living, with hope and courage in 2021.

May He redeem your loss and hardship of the past year.

May He lift your burdens, and console and comfort all that troubles you.

May He rock you in His hammock of mercy with good memories and reminders of His love.

May He spark family members who live outside His kind arms to come in.

May He counsel you with scripture and lead you in fervent prayer to bolster your soul.

May He sustain your health with strength.

May He protect your going forth and coming in.

May He inspire you to turn over new leaves to match your dreams and begin new habits.

May He draw you closer to His tender heart and keep you in perfect peace.

All this we pray in the name of our blessed Savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen.
