"Living God, I pray to you on behalf of my partner and lifelong mate.
Where there is pain and hurt, let Your healing Peace and Mercy wash over him.
Where he doubts himself, teach him afresh your perspective of true self-worth through Humility and Grace.
Where there is despair, open his eyes to see the Light and grant him Strength to proceed towards it.
Where there is frustration, offer him Your gifts of Wisdom and Patience.
Where anger causes inner turmoil and strained relationships, pour out Your Love and Calm the storm.
Where there are unresolved questions, show him how to Rest in knowing You.
Where he has grief and confusion over what has died, raise him up to Newness of Life.
Where he feels that his surroundings are hostile, send Us, his family and friends, to reassure him.
Where his careful planning has led to benefits for us, remind him what is worth Believing in and Spending on.
Where he is faithful and encourages those he loves and who love him, Guard his heart with Your Love and Joy.
Where he holds the seeds of new concepts of Justice and Hope for the world, Guide hin in how to Plant and Water them by Your Truth.
And as he plants and waters, You will give the increase."

As the New Year breaks the dawn, perhaps this would be a wonderful prayer to pray for the coming twelve months for someone you love and care for. Christine
