Amidah - part 9 - Blessing the year

Next, the Amidah reminds us that every day is like New Year's.  Think, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."  We bless the coming year.  We re-commit ourselves to "New Year's Resolutions" each and every day.

Bless for us, L-rd our G‑d, this year and all the varieties of its produce for good; and bestow (During the summer season say:) blessing (During the winter season say: dew and rain for blessing) upon the face of the earth. Satisfy us from Your bounty and bless our year like other good years, for blessing; for You are a generous G‑d who bestows goodness and blesses the years. Blessed are You L-rd, who blesses the years.

...and of course, thank G*d for helping us to fulfill on these commitments.
