A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis


During these difficult days, members of the Green Mountain 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.


Today’s prayer

Scripture: Genesis 32:22-31 Oh God, How many times in desperation, While fleeing with fear and trepidation, Have I sent away, sent on ahead The very beloved ones who would offer Comfort, solidarity, hope? Separated by waters, by time and space, I feel alone, isolated, set apart and truly Set beyond my limits. So in the dark of night, I wrestle. I wrestle with You, O God. I wrestle with faith, with doubt, with disbelief. I wrestle illness, with loneliness. I wrestle with my insecurities and arrogance, And with my judgment and bias That would view a stranger in the night As a violent danger to my life, Instead of Divine Comforter of my soul. May I find solace, strength, and sustenance In You, O God. In the very foundation of Life Abundant, May I rest secure. May I be forever marked by You, O God, Not as a sign of past injury and present struggle, But as symbol of Your steadfast, transforming presence That means I am never alone, always, with You. Rev. Sean Delmore, Pastor and Provisional Deacon, Grace United Methodist Church, Essex Junction, and Jericho United Methodist Church, Jericho, VT; Green Mountain District
