O Gracious Creative God,
a fresh new year is before us.
Open our minds to new possibilities
that you have for us.
Open our hearts to the need
of your beloved ones.
Refresh our souls
for the work you have for us.
Dazzle us with your presence,
Gracious Creative God,
that we, human beings, may yet
be recreated in your image. Amen.

Matthew 22:36-39:
“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
