Default New Year Prayer

A glorious time, a blessed joy filled season
Such happiness and joy are very pleasing
Hearts filled with delight and blissful cheer
Glistening lights, Holiday music fill the air
A time of grace, peace, and inner reflection
Indulging in food, parties, and gift selection
How blessed are we to be able to share
The most glorious, joyous time of the year

A very different picture for the needy and poor
They won't be rushing in and out of every store
Overflowing their carts at the local Marts
Loneliness, despair and sadness fill their hearts
For them a season of abandonment and rejection
On streets paved with disease and infection
Sheltered in boxes from the cold night air
The contrast of the life they bear is so unfair

Soon this year will end and a new year will start
My prayer for mankind is for peace in the heart
For it is there where love nourished will grow
Allowing the goodness within us to overflow
That we my respond generously to those in need
Avoiding being caught up in excess and greed
Then what we all hope for in our hearts will appear
Love, peace, joy and a blessed happy New Year!!!
