Gracious God, we have a new day
of a new week: a time to begin again
to do the things you would have us do.
As we bow before you in prayer,
quiet our minds, as we listen for
your still, small voice, and wait—
until we are filled with your Spirit
and are refreshed and ready for the day.
Guide and be with us as we try
to express your love to everyone
you are sending us to today. Amen.
1 John 4:7-8:
Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Hymn: This Is a Day of New Beginnings
