A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, members of the clergy class of 2020 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.
A prayer/poem inspired by Psalm 29 Lord God, you are our strength when life's violent winds blow knocking us down, when the fog creeps in and elects to linger, when the ground beneath us shakes leaving us feeling scattered, when the waters around us thrash, and when some morsel of reprieve comes again. Help us to feel you, your strength, reaching out to us in all things. Help us to know you again as the one who gives us the strength to be present with others in the storm. Help us to live, to live courageously, gently knowing that you and your love will forever be more powerful than all things. Amen.
