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.
Lord, during this pandemic, life has become so confusing. There are fear, grief, and so much anxiety. And yet, your Spirit resides within me. Sometimes, I feel you as near as my breath. Sometimes, I long to feel you but cannot. Today, I will trust that you are here. I will trust that you are with me even when my emotions hide your presence. Today, Lord, I will concentrate on keeping your commandments and I will trust that the Spirit that resides within will help me with that, for I do love you, God. Thank you for loving me. Rev. Dr. Jacquelyn Brannen, Northern Maine District Superintendent Scripture: John 14:15-21
