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 our ancestors, Your days are without number and your love everlasting. But we who walk this earth are mortal, and our current moment is filled with anxiety. COVID-19 has brought suffering and death, hunger and isolation. Systemic racism and white supremacy oppress and kill and threaten our very democracy. We are tired and find hope elusive. Help us to step into kairos, your eternal heavenly now. Let us stand beside your prophets and remember the challenges they overcame, the promises that you have always kept, and will keep still. Let the light of your glory drive away our fears and the Spirit of Christ accompany us down the mountain as we tackle the challenges of our own times, knowing that you will never abandon us. We pray this in the name of the Beloved. Amen.
