Pause for Prayer
By Karen Schoeppach
It’s a new year! Are you looking forward to making changes and learning something you didn’t know last year? Is your slate clean or are there some lines and smudges left from last year? Perhaps, you will just continue trudging along as you did last year and the year before. No changes needed. A review and reassessment of how we navigate through life each day would not be a bad thing. And change can be very good for us.
Father, we pray with gratitude for the opportunity to make a fresh start, to change the direction our life is going. We pray for the ability to see things clearly and for the strength to make changes even if it is easier to keep things the same. We ask all this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
