Prayer and Reflection for the New Year
 
Loving God, Sacred Mystery, waiting on the threshold of this New Year, beckon to me: “Come! Come! Be not weary of what awaits you as you enter the unknown terrain. Be not doubtful of your ability to grow from its joys and sorrows. I am with you.”
 
Loving God:
When I miss the beauty of Earth’s goodness and the interconnectedness of all your creation…
When in my rush and busyness, the call to serve others loses its favor…
When my frailty outruns my strength…
When the hope in my heart fades away…
When loneliness pursues me…
When the aches of the world wear my compassion thin…
When the troubles of others seem more than I carry…
 
Walk closely with me, my God.
 
Loving God,
As I journey into the unknown territory of a new year…
As I hurt in the process of loving those I dislike or find difficult…
As I learn to accept my strengths, weaknesses and mistakes…
As I keep searching for the truth in times of confusion, doubt and conflict...
As I try to be a voice for the voiceless and powerless...
As I strive to live and witness your inclusive love, compassion, forgiveness, justice and peace…
As I do the work of the Christmas message and make Christ visible to others...
 
Walk closely with me, my God.

 

happy new year
