Almighty Father,

We praise you for being the alpha and the omega,

the beginning and the end of things seen and unseen.

Thank you for letting us enjoy the breath of life,

spring and summer, autumn and the winter to come.

Thank you especially for your presence,

for in your presence is healing and life and joy.

Show us how to be your disciple in each and every season of life,

in its newness and fullness, in its setbacks and joys,

for alone we would perish as many do, day after day.

For in each day is new life and joy, learning and maturity, condemnation and judgment, sickness and death,

but you shelter us in each day in your infinite wisdom,

that through the power of your Holy Spirit, we will someday see you face to face.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
