January 3 Prayer
A new start of a new week of the new year.
Make space for God to act within you
Clear out whatever distracts you
Let all of your intentions rise up and then let them go
Let them become one in accord with the mind of Christ
With encouragement and peace
With compassion and consolation
Being of full accord
of one mind
Filled to overflowing in your heart
One heart and one passion
To know him and make him known
Enter this day empty
To be filled
Here we are Lord,
With our empty cups and empty baskets
asking you to fill them
With our lips we give thanks for who you are.
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Fill our minds with your love and wisdom
Fill our time with deeds of kindness
May our souls be filled of hope
Thank you that you have heard our vows and have already given us our inheritance.
Let us walk into this new year with expectancy and openness
Knowing you will fill us once again
From the spirit you gave us!
