Conversations with God
A prayer for the new year
January 8, 2021
Hello God, it’s me, Mara:
“God of the years that lie behind us, Lord of the years that stretch before,
Weaver of all the ties that bind us, Keeper and King of the open door:
Grant us hope and courage glowing Whiter and pure as the stars above:
Grant us faith in a full stream flowing, From the heights of Your eternal love.
Out of the ruins of doubt and sorrows, Out of the aches and pain and tears,
Help us to fashion a new tomorrow, Free form the anguish of blighting fears.
All through the season of sowing and reaping, All through the harvest of song and tears.
Hold us close in Your ten...
