Our New Year’s Prayer For You

new year's prayer love never grow old

Loving heavenly Father, Karen and I pray for all out there,

that they would feel Your love in every care.

In every struggle they are going through,

they would feel light in their darkness shine through.

Give to them eyes to see they aren’t weak for

seeking the help of others.

This is how we show we are sisters;

we are brothers.

We hope for them that every day

they would feel Your love that never goes away.

Bless their lives abundantly.

Help them joy in life to see.

Their lives are a gift to suffering humanity.

Have them take times to laugh.

Others would feel the healing medicine of their smile.

Grant to them a listening ear to those feeling sad, feeling lonely, feeling fear.

Guide them as to others they draw near.

More than being wealthy this we would pray;

they would feel the richness of Your love every day.

We hope for peace in people’s lives to live.

It’s the love inside that is the best thing to give.

We hope that today and with every tomorrow,

you would feel God’s comfort in times of sorrow.

When you feel or see anyone outside in the bitter cold,

you would share with that person the story of God’s love

that never grows old.

Take time away from the noise in your life to read God’s Word,

for quiet reflection so you will be given strength from above,

to share with others the message of God’s healing love.

Lord, please give to all a renewed sense of purpose,

the growing feeling of Your holy call.

God richly bless you one and all!

About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
