God of the ages,
you are before us,
and beyond us.
Lead us, we pray,
from winter to spring;
from night to day;
from darkness to light;
from slumber to consciousness;
from an old year to a new beginning.
May your renewing Spirit burst forth into our lives
with forgiveness, fresh vision, and blessed hope;
through the resurrecting power of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
