Let Us Pray


Creator God

at the start

of this New Year

when thoughts turn again

to beginnings

starting afresh

new leaves

and turning skeletons

free from cupboards

be with us

as we gaze into the distance

of fresh mission grounds

of hopes and dreams

opportunities for service


and uncertainties

Take our fears

and turn them into strengths

Take our lack of faith

and empower us

through the Spirit

who breathes life into this world

whose presence is reflected

in the icy chill

of winter's breath

as well as the comforting warmth

of a summer breeze.

Walk with us into this New Year

of opportunity
