A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, members of the Commonwealth East District of the New England Conference 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.
Holy, Loving and All-Seeing God:
We come as your people, burdened with fear and uncertainty. Mourning the loss of family members and friends. Unable to be in the presence or embrace those we care about. Worrying about what the future holds!
We are a struggling people, seeking your guidance. Through all of this we know that you are our strength and hope. We know that you are always with us.
Father, during the times that we forget you are God, All-Mighty, help us to remember that “On Christ the solid rock we stand! All other ground is sinking sand! All other ground is sinking sand!”
In the name of Jesus, The Christ, we pray. AMEN! By Ruby L. Blake, Lay Leader, Commonwealth East District & Lay Leader, Union (Boston, MA) Psalm: 105:4 “Seek the Lord and His Strength; Seek His Presence Continually.”
