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.
Holy Spirit Come to me! Fill me! Inspire me! No, that’s not right. Be the source of wisdom in my life. Become the spring of discernment throughout my days. Mature in me as the Spirit of God. Not just while my hands are held high in worship But while they are cuffed by hardship. In drudgery and setbacks, In delays and interruptions, Interminable waiting. Yes, that’s right, Holy Spirit. While life batters and bruises Be the source of wisdom. Become the spring of discernment. Mature in me as the Spirit of God. Amen.
