Prayer for the New Year

Lord, help me to unclutter my life,
to organize myself in the direction of simplicity,
teach me to listen to my heart;
teach me to welcome change, instead of fearing it.
Lord, I give you the stirrings inside of me.
I give you my discontent.
I give you my restlessness.
I give you my doubt.
I give you my despair.
I give you all the longings I have inside.
Help me listen to the signs of change, of growth;
Help me to listen seriously and follow where they lead
through the breathtaking empty space of an open-door.

     — Common Prayer
