We Resolve

We make resolutions
we make plans
we make promises
but then life gets hard again

So we make mistakes
we make adjustments
and we make excuses

Forgive us God
for our botched resolutions
for our adjusted plans
for our broken promises

Give us the strength to change as you would have us
Moreover, break all our resolutions, plans and promises
that do not have you at the center

We know that you will keep all your promises
so we try to keep ours
Bless our attempts
Forgive our failures

We resolve, again, to be yours.
