Remembering Baptismal Grace

Cleanse me in the depths of your love, O Lord,
that I might emerge to glimpse heaven.
Brush me with the wings of your grace,
and lead me from the wilderness to fullness of life.
Amen.

For a new year

Loving God,
may the best that I have learned from the past, enrich my future;
may the mistakes I have made in the past not mar my future;
may your truth from the past be my truth for the future;
and may I grow in faith and maturity day by day, moment by moment, and know that yesterday, today, tomorrow and for ever: you are my God!
Amen.

A prayer for Christmas

Timeless God,
sometimes it is easier to be critical than to be joyful,
easier to complain than to rejoice,
easier to hold back than to enjoy.
Lord Jesus, fill my heart with wonder, hope and peace
that I may rejoice in you my God and my Saviour
this Christmas and every day.
Amen.

As we get ever busier

Eternal God, you called John when he was in the wilderness, to prepare the way for your Son. Speak to me in my wildernesses of tiredness, anxiety and longing, and prepare a way in my heart, that I may receive the forgiveness, the healing, and the peace that your Son delights to give.
Amen.

For this first week of a new church year

Lord Jesus, on you the past and the future hinge.
You open the door to past wisdom and to future knowledge.
You are the kingdom among us and the kingdom yet to come.
May this Advent be as a new beginning in my walk of faith.
And, inspired by all those who have gone before me,
may my steps be bold, faithful and just.
I ask this in your name.
Amen.
