Most of all, I thank you for the experience this past year; for times of success which I will always remember, for times of failure which reminded me of how much I still need to learn and of my need for You, for times of joy when the sun was shining and everything seemed so bright, for times of sadness which tested my ability to overcome and drove me closer to You. Forgive me for the hours I wasted, for the chances I failed or was too scared to take, and for the opportunities I missed or let slip by this past year. Help me in the days, weeks, and months ahead to make this my best year yet; to bring good credit and character to myself, happiness and pride to my trusted friends and family, and joy to You, my Lord”, remarked by Engalla in his invocation.
