your days are without beginning
and without end.
We dedicate this coming year to you.
Give us such prosperity as you know is good for us,
and make us abound in doing whatever is pleasing to you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
“make us abound in doing whatever is pleasing to you” is a reference to 2 Corinthians 9:8
