A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, members of the clergy class of 2021 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.
"Oh the joy, the joy, the joy of those who meditate day and night in the law of the Lord!" —paraphrase, Psalm 1:2
Immeasurable love, you have shaped the world with beauty and delight, so that even when we are are sorrowful we cannot deny the splendor of creation. Even your laws are beautiful: care for each other. honor all life. be guided by gentleness. pour out generosity. welcome, welcome, welcome all. Today may my roots reach deep into the ground of your word. May the soil of your love nourish me, so I may stand strong in the storm, so I may bend without breaking, so having been blessed by you, I may bless your world with joy and delight. Amen.
