As the New Year Begins
As the New Year begins, let’s begin this season with a blessing and a prayer . . . .
The God of all creation continually bless and guide us as God seeks to make all things new. May this new year and the God who guides it bring hope to our hearts, focus to our minds, and cause our souls to be born anew. May we see the world through God’s eyes and not our own, listen to the sounds of need around us with the ears of Christ, seek to serve more than to be served, and step out in faith as we face the opportunities before us. May God bless our thoughts, our words and our actions now as we move in to this new year, filled with new opportunities.
Please pray with me:
We thank you, O Holy One, for this new year filled with possibilities, and for all the potential it holds. Come, kindle in us a mighty flame of passion, so that in our time, in this time, many will come to know you and the wonders of your love. And may it be born anew in each of us as we seek to be Your hands, Your feet, Your voice, offering you and your love, all guided and filled by Your Spirit. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
May this be our prayer throughout this year as we simply ask God’s blessing on what is to come.
