God of each new dawn,
You are constantly creating, making things new.
Each day brings a myriad of new beginnings.
It can be overwhelming as well as exciting.
Fill me with courage and hope at the start of this semester.
Help me as I make my way through the difficult moments and the joyful ones.
Show me how to seek out opportunities available to me
and where to find support and encouragement.
Help me to see possibilities and options.
Guide me when I face struggles.
Remind me that you are always with me. Amen.
