Most Christians have an abundance of material blessings to count at the end of the year for which to thank the Lord. Even if they have none of these, however, God has crowned the year with goodness and favor, with lovingkindness and tender mercies, with grace and glory and honor and, best of all His own presence.
 
Psalm 65
11 You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.

Psalm 5
12 For surely, O LORD , you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

As we stand on the threshold of a new year, may this prayer of faith and anticipation be ours:
 
O Lord god, who has called us, Your servants,
To ventures of which we cannot see the ending.
By paths as yet untrodden,
And through perils unknown,
Give us faith to go out with good courage,
Not knowing where we go
But only that Your hand is leading us

                                                                  And Your love is supporting us.
