Lord,

I know so many people who need new beginnings.  Some will be easy and others a great deal of hard work; but all are filled with great potential.

Give all those looking for new beginnings the grace to experience Your presence in every moment. Wisdom to learn from the past. Patience, perseverance and courage to keep going. Hope to move into Your future. And faith to trust that failure itself can be a new beginning.

Thank You for being the God of new beginnings. Thank You for being the God of multiple new beginnings. And thank You that all Your new beginnings have as their goal living in Your eternal love.

I pray this in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
