    Default Sentece correction

    I doubt whether it is correct:


    Let the upcoming year bring you strenght,(is the comma needed?) to finish the unfinished and willingness to create what has never been created.


    Is this sentence grammaticaly correct?

    Welcome to the board, Ravass.

    Let the upcoming year bring you strength to finish the unfinished and the willingness to create what has never been created.
    No comma is needed.

    Why is "the" needed before "willingness to create" and it's not before "stregth to finish"?

    On reflection, it's not needed.

    Feel free to ignore it.

    "Strength" is one difficult word to spell.
