A Prayer for New Beginnings

Remind me today, God,
That you are a God of new beginnings,
A God of resurrection
Who turns graves into gardens,
Who restores broken things –
Broken hearts, broken lives, broken relationships, broken bodies.
That from tiny seeds you grow mighty trees …
And tiny shrubs with yummy fruit.
Today, for me, for _____________,
Would you give me/us a sign of new life,
That forces its way up through the hard pavement of disappointment?
Would you birth new, robust life in me;
life that survives disappointment
And isn’t stifled by reality.
Remind me that my hope, my life, is in a Saviour not a solution.
Today, I choose hope. Today I choose life in YOU!
Today is a day of new beginnings.
