Open Our Hearts To Your Presence

Dear Lord, open our hearts to your Presence
in this new year,
that we might recognize You
and love You in everything.
Grant that we might be reconciled to one another.
Console and bring healing to those who are suffering,
protect human life and the dignity of the human person,
bring peace
and spare us from the scourge of further war.
Place in our hearts 
and committed love for You.
Give us trust in the wisdom and goodness
of Your will for our lives,
and enable us to love one another.
