A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, members of the New England Conference staff 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.
Based on Exodus 20: 1-17 and Matthew 22: 37-38
Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, your mind and your soul. We will love God with an intensity such that no substitute will suffice, the very mention of God's name will be precious as we cleave to our time of communion with the sacred. Love your neighbor as yourself. We will respect the wisdom of our elders. We will protect the lives and the reputations of those around us. We will cherish the relationships entrusted to us. We will not take what is not ours. We will learn the value of enough. Love the Lord your God. Amen.
