Lord of Joy, I find myself at the cusp of a new life. This brings me fear and hesitation, but I know You will walk with my family. May You bring this new life joy and love. May You provide opportunities and laughter for my children. May You renew and strengthen our faith in You. Please carry us from old to new, dark to light. And through it all, we will sing praises to Your goodness. May this new journey be a beautiful one. In Your glorious name, we pray, Amen.
