"Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

Staring into the great unknown of change can be daunting to say the least. From smaller changes like starting a new school year to monumental ones like getting married, transitions can be stressful, beautiful, unsettling times.

If you’re preparing to go through a change — or perhaps you’ve had one suddenly cast on you — this prayer from The Criterion will help you embrace change by surrendering your cares to God the Father:

Loving God,

I ask you to bless this new beginning.
Though much has changed, I know your love for me will never change.
Please remind me of your presence in the kindness, patience, and guidance others extend to me in this new place.
Help me to be the best version of myself, so that I may flourish here — mentally, physically and spiritually. Let my Christ light shine for others, so that they may know your goodness.
Anoint this threshold with your peace. I place my hand in yours, God. Together, let’s begin.

Amen.
