My Prayer For You In 2018

by Frances Gregory Pasch

My prayer for you this new year

Is that God will pour on you

An anointing of His Spirit

Over all you say and do. 

May His love flow through your actions.

May His joy show on your face.

May others feel His presence…

It’s called Amazing Grace. 

May each new day be special

Filled with blessings from above.

May you feast upon His goodness…

Then with others share His love.
