September is the time when we look to new beginnings. Maybe you are starting at a new school, or a new school year. Maybe you are taking up a job for the first time or facing new challenges in life. It can be hard and scary but we can be assured that God is still with us.


Lord God of beginnings, help us when we find it hard to get started with life’s tasks, projects and relationships. Help us to take your hand and take some first steps.
