Faith for the Journey



Bless our clocks and watches, 
You who kindly direct us to observe the passing of minutes and hours.
May they make us aware of the miracle of each second of life we experience.
May these, our ticking servants, 
Help us not to miss that which is important,  
While you keep us from machine-like routine. 
May we ever be free from being clock watchers and instead become time lovers.

Bless our calendars, 
These ordered lists of days, weeks and months, 
Of holidays, holy days, fasts and feasts,
May these servants, our calendars, 
Once reserved for the royal few, For Magi and priests,
Now grace our homes and our lives.
May they remind us of birthdays and other gift-days,
As they teach us the secret that all life
 Is meant for celebration and contemplation.

Bless, Lord, this New Year,
Each of its 365 days and nights.
Bless us with full moons and new moons.
Bless us with happy seasons and a long life. 
Grant to us, Lord, the new year’s gift;
 A gift of love.
