For new beginnings

God of new beginnings and fresh hope,
you are timeless and yet come to us “in time.”
We offer you all that has been
and ask you to bless all that will be:
a blessing for our family members and friends,
living and deceased;
patience in dealing with problems and problem people;
trust in times of sickness.
Give us grace to grow,
courage for our challenges,
and sweeten our successes with your joy.
Urge us to love you more by loving others
and forgiving hurts,
for You are a God who resets the clock
by forgetting our past.
Inspire us to pray daily with sincerity of heart
and assist us to be the persons you call us to be
in this world, in this time, this day.
