God, we thank you for you for this time of Autumn, as September brings a new cycle of terms, seasons and courses.
A time to pause.
A time to reflect.
A time to consider what truly matters.
A time to tune in to what is really driving us.
A time to gather our strength for the winter ahead.
A time for fresh starts, leaving behind what is not good for us and embracing what is.
A time to centre ourselves on You. Your Love. Your Peace.
Draw us closer to you God. Call us closer every day. May we know this Autumn that you are the focus and anything drawing us away from that must fall away like leaves, to make way for the new shoots you promise will grow.
Oh God, for I can’t wait to see the springtime of growth after this particular autumn.
Peace be with you
