I have been reading this prayer every morning in this New Year, and thought it might be inspiring to others. It is by Joyce Rupp, from her book Fresh Bread: and Other Gifts of Spiritual Nourishment. It feels especially relevant on this new day that the Inauguration marks for us:
Come to meet me, God of life,
reach into the mystery of my self.
Take me into the heart of this year
and give me the confidence to
journey freely, lovingly, with risk,
wonder and laughter.
