A Prayer for 2017

2016 may have felt like all that could go wrong did.
With the new year coming, although there may always be sorrow around you, I hope you choose hope.

And May you always remember the strength of prayer.

May the troubles of this year bring you blessings for the next year
May the struggles you faced give you the perseverance to bring change
May the push back you felt strengthen your stance
May every sorrow you felt enlighten your empathy
May the bigotry you fear encourage you to find strength
May your voice grow with bravery and boldness
May you always have the courage to do the right thing
May you find success in everything you do
and May you never forget God is always near.

Here’s praying for a 2017 filled with happiness, success, love and tolerance.
