Prayer for Renewal



I need renewal

like the sunrise,

that often.


Help me see it in all areas stale or stagnate

help me see it in all its forms:


like fresh snow under sunshine

like the crocus through the frost

like spring birds chirping at midnight.


Make these dead seeds in my heart

live again,

flowering into something new,

petals facing the light,

letting in You—


always available.


Sweep across my horizon

like windswept sunbeams

after clean rain.


Not retained, unconfined.

Blasting from darkness.

Powerful, vibrant with resurrection.


O Lord of Renewal,
