A Prayer for the New Year

I asked for wonders instead of happiness, Lord, and you gave them to me.

Sounds more like a lament of the old year than a prayer for the new one.

That said, I find a broader perspective to be mildly comforting. 2016 wasn't great, but 1916 was unimaginably worse, and 1816 was no picnic either.
