A Scottish Prayer for the New Year

I have been very influenced by the Scottish tradition of Reformed theology, especially through the Torrance family. With that I offer to you a prayer for the New Year from the Scottish Book of Common Prayer (1912):

Immortal Lord God, who inhabitest eternity, and hast brought us, thine unworthy servants, to the beginning of another year: Pardon, we most humbly beseech thee, our transgressions in the past, and graciously abide with us all the days, of our life; guard and direct us in all trials and temptations, that by thy blessing we may grow in grace as we grow in years, and at the last may finish our course with joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

May the Lord bless you, take you deeper into an understanding of his gospel, and use you for the sake of his kingdom in 2014.
