Prayer for New Beginning
God of gentle Connection
as You abide in me
lead me in turn
to connect with others
through Your leading strings of love.
God of non-judgemental Compassion
as I keep faith with Your unfolding pathway
be the silent sacred guide
to the quiet still waters of Your presence
as I seek communion and acceptance .
God of indefatigable Hope
that rises with the dawn of each new day
be the Spirit presence within
that brings light to all of life
that draws us to the beauty of new beginnings.

This week's Scripture:
I am the true vine and my Father is the vinedresser. Make your home in me as I make mine in you, As a branch cannot bear fruit by itself, but miust remain part of the vine, neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are branches. Whoever remains in me, with me in him, bears fruit in plenty, for cut off from me you can do nothing.
