I praise you for new beginnings.
I step into 2021,
my eyes fixed on you,
my hand in your hand,
trusting and resting in you,
hoping and anticipating your move.
Ready me, heal me, prepare me for my work,
that you’ve already established for my hands uniquely.
Set me in the places of belonging
where you’d shine your light through me.
Grant me your wisdom and vision,
a boundaried life,
prioritized by your heart and purposes.
Mold me and make me ready and fit
to be your soldier and your light,
to love you and love others
in the way you’ve purposed me for.
And I pray all the glory would be yours,
that my deepest delight would be to please you,
I will live solely for the audience of One.
I praise you God, and for all you will do.
