A prayer for the grace of new beginnings

Glory be to you, O God, for the gift of life unfolding through those who have gone before me.

Glory be to you, O God, for your life planted within my soul and in every soul coming into the world.

Glory be to you, O God, for the grace of new beginnings placed before me in every moment and encounter of life.

Glory, glory, glory for the grace of new beginnings in every moment of life.

 

(John Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction; Morning and Night Prayer, 61-65)

  1. Dear Carrie,

    Thank you for the prayer for the grace of new beginnings!

    I often don’t open my Iphone in the wee hours when I arise for morning prayer on Sunday, but did this morning – and your prayer was like ‘manna from heaven.’

    I trust you are well.

    I leave town Tuesday for the annual meeting of the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes in Denver – and will get some very special time with my brother and his family in Evergreen.

    Blessings,

    Bob
