A Prayer for the Year to Come

A PRAYER FOR THE YEAR TO COME

May we be fully present to those who cross our paths.

May we open space and time for surprise.

May we change course when change is called for

and be ruddered by our deepest purposes.

May we remember that we can afford to laugh

and to be silent in the midst of much speaking.

May we give gladly and receive gratefully.

May our mourning be deep and trusting

and our celebrations generous and joyful.

May we be quick to repent

and patient in recovery.

May we learn from the teachers we are sent

and from the Spirit who indwells and awakens.

May we step forward with courage,

step back with courtesy

and stand still when our work is to wait.
