Prayer for a New Year


Creator God,
The wheel is turning,
a new year beginning,
reminding us of our place in time.

We are part of this world you made,
not as separate bits and pieces
but as part of the beautiful
wholeness of your plan.

Our strength is from your mountains,
our patience from your lakes, and
our love is from our brothers and sisters
with whom we share this world.

As we face this year,
help us in all we do
to better understand our part in
your miracle of creation,
and to make this world a better place,
now and forever.
