Helping America's Most Vulnerable

A New Vision

prayer for week of Jan 25

A New Vision

Oh God, as we begin another week may you help us to see life through new eyes. In the midst of dark and cold days may we see the beauty of retreat that nature teaches us. In the harshness of life may we see the beauty in love around us, seen in the smallest snowflake or a gentle smile.

Help us oh God, to celebrate winters past. Help us to appreciate the beauty of challenges met; deadlines accomplished; community built. May gratitude continue for the journey we have taken where we have paused to see beauty and divinity all around us, despite the circumstances. Oh God give us fresh eyes to see our day anew. May we see our family, our work, our week through the eyes of possibility. And, oh God, remind us deep in the recesses of our beings that we are not in the winter of life alone.

Amen
