A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, Drew Theological School in Madison, NJ, is 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.
God of grace and God of glory, We come to you in praise and awe, grateful for the ways you have shown your face to us, a glimpse of hope in shadowy times, a vision of mercy and desperate moments, the offer of joy in days of sorrow. You have listened when we cry out, and have brought us out of the dust of death to the soil of new life. In this season of Lent, as we return and repent, you are ready to receive us, just as we are, to hear our prayers of lament and our prayers of thanksgiving. Remind us that, in our faithfulness, comes our redemption. In our commitment, comes our fulfillment. In our remembering, comes our renewal. For you are above all things, and you will prosper your people as we remain before you, ever looking into the face of grace. Amen.
By Rev. Dr. Tanya Linn Bennett, Associate Dean, Associate Professor in the Practice of Public Theology and Vocation Based on Psalm 22:23-31
