Prayer for the New Year
Dear Lord, at the beginning of this New Year,
I remember that you are a God of beginnings and endings.
You created the world, with all its eternal patterns.
Winter begins in frost, and ends in Spring's thaw.
Spring begins in new, green life, ending in Summer's heat.
Summer begins in sunshine, and ends in Autumn's breezes.
And Autumn's color leads to the white of Winter again.
As another year ends and begins in our lives,
help us to remember that you have made a world of cycles.
When fortune turns to trials, or hardship turns to joy,
help me take delight in the life I've received from you.
Remind me that I will one day pass from this world
and enter a new life like those who've gone before me.
