God of beginnings, as I am facing a new day give me new insight to your love in the world. Open my mind and my heart to new ways of thinking, speaking, and taking action. Help me to not be complacent or feel overwhelmed by the challenges of each new day but to be invigorated by what I might do to bring your peace to others. Amen.
God of endings, I recognize that all things must come to an end so that new things can live but sometimes it is so hard to walk this path. Give me strength to face the endings that are needed in life so that good things may come. Amen.
