A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis for June 12, 2020

June 12, 2020

A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis

During these difficult days, Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar and the members of the Extended Cabinet 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

O God, We are — health care providers,  clerks and lawyers, engineers and waitresses teachers and students children and parents,  farmers and artists sinners and saints .... 

We are    young and old lay and clergy wealthy and poor over-indulged and underserved strong and frail hopeful and dejected

We are      summoned ... to cast out evil to cure disease  to go to the lost  to proclaim good news

We are  confronted ... with a pandemic with racism   with too many instances of police brutality         with corruption and abuses of power  with empire that cares not for the least  but for self-preservation 

We are  the baptized given authority, bestowed with gifts ... to live and lead in this time of uncertainty to eradicate racism in all its manifestations to heal the environment  to be present in the world’s suffering

Grant us  humility to learn and unlearn wisdom to relearn and retool the will to change the ability to serve in a digital age 

Hear us our pleas our confessions our hopes   our desires ...  

  we pray in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen 

By Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar  Scriptural Reading: Matthew 9:35-10:8
