I can't begin to count all the
and new beginnings
you've offered me, Lord,
in my lifetime,
in the year at hand,
and since I woke this morning:
for there is no end to your
to your patience,
Your mercy is never exhausted, Lord,
your compassion is never spent:
your kindness is renewed each morning...*
Make me grateful for your love and mercy, Lord:
let me never take it for granted...
So, this day, Lord, open up
my heart and soul,
my eyes, my ears, my mind,
my awareness and my imagination...
Open me wide
to all the ways you'll offer me today
a second chance,
a clean slate,
a fresh start
and a new beginning...
And as you have freely given me
the grace of starting over,
help me be free in offering all
my patience and my pardon...
