Blessings to you as we approach the new year of 2017. I want to commend to you a prayer drawn from our Book of Common Prayer, especially suitable at this time:
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you,
so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations,
so control our wills, that we may be wholly yours,
utterly dedicated unto you;
and then use us, we pray you, as you will,
and always to your glory and the welfare of your people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Rev. Dr. John D. Stonesifer
