Starting a New Thing

O Lord,
This new year begins with a tumble of hopes and dreams.
Resolutions to do more, be more, have more.

This new year begins
with weariness
with a long to-do list
with regret for what is not yet done.

O Lord,
Hear our hopes that this year will be the year.
Hold our dreams steady in your hands.
May we trust that you are with us.
May we be bold enough to trust that in our dream
there are the sparks of the dream you have for each of us.

O Lord,
May these holy sparks ignite our lives.
