1 JANUARY 2011.
O God of mercy and light, so much in need in our world,
grant us your blessing in this new year
as we strive to live in greater unity with your Holy Will,
not by our own works,
but by the grace of your assistance.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Holy Trinity,
infuse our thoughts, our works, our actions, and our hearts,
so that every thought, work, act, and our very being be not
a thought, work, act, or self of human estate,
but come, Dear Father, to live and reign in us through grace.
In a special way at the beginning of this year,
when our hearts and spirits focus on its possibilities,
O Lord, lift us to You, by your gracious love,
so that we may be assisted in giving all that we have to You.
We entrust our prayers
to the intercessory assistance of all the angels and saints,
and most especially to our Mother, the Queen of the Divine Will,
that the Lord's will be done in each of our lives
and that our petitions will be heard.
