God of renewal and recreation,
As we observe the turning of the year,
We know that all time is still in You.
While we feel shaped by the sands sifting in the hourglass,
We know that is the molding of your Spirit that truly brings us into who you have made us to be.
Be with us this day and in all the days ahead.
Give us the resolve to be still.
Grant us the courage to move at your Word.
Gift us the faith to continue on until all we trust is true becomes visible before us.
