God Of Change

prayer for week of Apr 25

O God, all around us we see change. We find it both exciting and fearful. We experience change as opportunity as well as intimidation. Change is a constant and reliable fact of our human life, yet we humans sometimes resist it, almost at our peril.

O God of change, give us courage to face change and embrace new beginnings with courage and through the lens of optimism.

Our children may be graduating school this year; an elderly resident may be fearing physical changes; perhaps our supervisor asks new tasks of us; perhaps we are pushing ourselves to take on a project out of our comfort zone.

For strength, courage and an optimistic spirit, we come to You. Remind us again, O God, that although we struggle with change, peace can come, accompanied by confidence and great joy.


Rev. Al
