A Daily Prayer During this COVID-19 Crisis


April 23, 2021 A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis During these difficult days, Bishop Devadhar and members of the Extended Cabinet are sharing a daily prayer based on the Revised Common Lectionary for the week. You are welcome to use these in worship or in your own devotions. Today’s prayer O God, we live in a cyber world: we ask Siri where to eat; we trust a GPS to direct our route; we communicate in texts and tweets, we post photos on Facebook and Snapchat. We are thankful for the ways these devices, connect us with friends, create bridges across continents, and expand our exploration of the world with the touch of a finger. And yet, O God, we know these are no substitute for what we need most. And so we listen. We listen hard to hear the voice that calls us from the places where we’ve wandered. We listen hard to hear above the chatter and the noise, the voice that we know so well, the voice of the One who watches over us and who loves us, through and through. We listen, and we hear the clear, tender, unmistakable voice of the Good Shepherd who calls us, each and every one, by name, to our true home. And we follow. O God, fill us with your love, lead us to embrace the companionship of Jesus, and mold us with the power of the Holy Spirit, that we may hear the voice of the Good Shepherd amidst the myriad of voices we hear daily. We pray in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen By Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar John10:11-18
