A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar and members of the New England Conference 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.
Spirit of the Living God, Fall Afresh on us! We praise your name and give you thanks for you are with us always in both the mountain tops and the valleys of our lives. This past year has been a difficult year for many of us. Those days of being physically distanced and isolated from family and friends have made us ever mindful of the many blessings that we too often have taken for granted. Help us to recognize that every moment, every hour, every day, is crafted by you. Life can be tough right now. We need you to open our hearts and fill us with your grace that we may see the opportunities to witness to your presence in them. May the gift of your presence in and around us be shared with all through our living and through our loving in all circumstances. “Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow; Praise God, all creatures here below; Praise God above, ye heavenly host; Creator, Son, and Holy Ghost.” Amen! Submitted by Rich Hughen, Interim Conference Lay Leader Inspired by Psalm 118: 1-2, 19-29
