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 God, you made everything … beautiful and good We praise you today for creating day and night the earth, sky, and seas the sun, moon, and stars the plants and animals of every kind God, you made everything … beautiful and good And you invited us into all of that goodness You created us, your beloved community, in your very own image and likeness And you called it all good … very good All of your creation is beautiful and good Forgive us for trying to create you in our image and likeness… For it is the other way around We can look into a mirror and see only part of you To fully embrace the beauty and goodness that you are and that you created, We shall recognize the fullness of your creation And only when we truly see all that you have made and called good Will we see the fullness of who you are. Amen By Rev. Erica Robinson-Johnson, Assistant to the Bishop/Director of Connectional Ministries Scripture: Genesis 1:1-2:4a
