Thank you Redeeming God, for new beginnings. You teach us to have hope one each new day and call us to live a live filled with love and forgiveness and anticipation. As new days, ministries, relationships begin, help us to celebrate the incredible passion and ministry of those who have gone before and look for the opportunities that are ahead for all of us as we continue to live in ways that honor you, O God. Let us feel your presence as we follow the path that is set before us and may we and all we love be blessed this and everyday. All this we ask in the the name of the God who creates, redeems and sanctifies. Amen.
