New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Almighty God, creator of time itself, we thank You for this past year and thank you for always being there for us in good times and bad times.   There were so many memories this year and so many things to be thankful for.  Thank You for the gift of time.  That is really all that we have here on earth and we squander it.  Help us in this coming year to live a life that is full of love and mercy to others.  Help us to slow down to enjoy the tender moments of this life.  Guide us so that we will be quick to listen and slow to speak so that our relationships with each other will be similar to the relationship that You have with us.  One that is full of never ending forgiveness, grace and love.  The same love that set us free from bondage to sin and death in the form of one small child that changed to world forever. To you alone be all the glory in each and everyone of our lives.  In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray.  Amen.

Bring us peace

Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior of the world surround us with Your grace. Bring peace to our hearts, bring peace to our minds, and bring peace to this world. Jesus, there is a void in this world that only You can fix. This world needs hope and rejuvenation. We need to be woken up from our complacency so that we can be driven to live a life committed to the cause of Christ. Help us to not get so caught up in materialism and the ways of this world that we forget just how blessed we are. We are all blessed because 2000 years ago You humbled Yourself to come down to this world as a fragile baby that would show the generations of the world just how much God loved each and every one them. We can celebrate Your birth, life, and resurrection every day of our life because You have triumphed over all. Sin and death have no hold on us because of You. That is the good news that we share with the world each and every day.
