In this New Year (a prayer for pastors)

Holy One,

In this New Year,
work through us,
in the hopes we share,
In the stories we tell,
in the efforts to get it right,
in the remembrance of our baptisms.

graceIn this New Year,
sustain us,
when the beloved elder dies,
when the faithful family moves,
when the angry email arrives,
when the hope we held vanishes.

In this New Year, console us,
with the voice of your love,
with the power of your mercy,
with the light of your truth,
with the gift of your grace.

Amen.
