Prayer for Sunday (New Years Day)

Today is New Years Day for all those who follow the Gregorian calendar, as well as the Shinto religion New Years called Oshogatsu or Shogatsu. It is also the Festival of St Basil the Great, one of the great fathers of the Orthodox Christian church.

Lead me from death
to Life, from falsehood to Truth

Lead me from despair
to Hope, from fear to Trust

Lead me from hate
to Love, from war to Peace

Let Peace fill our heart,
our world, our universe.

(Satish Kumar, adopted by the Prayer for Peace movement, 1981)

Today’s Affirmation:

“I am at peace with the Universe.”
