Monday Prayer – First of the Year

I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown!”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
Minnie Louise Haskins 1876 – 1957

We stand together at the gate of this New Year
Stepping through whether we want to or no…
Knowing always that you are there
We offer our hands, our hearts, our lives
And pray that we will follow that way, lit by you, unknown but safe.

Today I pray for all my sisters and brothers, known and unknown
That the STARlight will shine on each one
Guiding and inspiring us – to palaces and bare stables
To richness of life and love
In this new adventure of 2016

We hope you'll join the conversation!
