Instead, I will ask that Your resolutions be mine.
Your path, my path. Your will, my will.
Let us walk headlong into this new year together.
Take my hand. Pull me along, with urgency, if needed.
Let me never stray from the course you’ve set out for me,
even when I cannot see my way through.
God, we will need you next to us
to guide us through every stage of our “I do,”
Guide us — seller and buyer both —
through this change
with open and eager hearts.
I turn to you for comfort, for the sure knowing
that my pet is with you forever and that
some far-off day, we will be reunited.
Beloved, be with all of us in our
leaning into something new
leaning with trust on one another
leaning in toward the light.
And I knew that could happen
to our world too —
This growing in
and emerging from
Darkness into Light
Creator of the Universe, in your grace you promise us that those who die still live in Your presence. Their spirits have simply been transformed but have not ended. I pray in gratitude and hope for my family, relatives and friends that have gone before me, and for all the dead known to You alone.
Be my guide.
Help me to be aware
Of all that lies before, behind and around me.
Almighty God, as they walk the halls of sickness, help them to be a healing presence
May we see and touch every patient as if it were you.
Breathe in God and breathe out love.
Delight in the beauty that surrounds you each day.
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
