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.
O wonderful God of possibilities The hour has come for us to glorify you Jesus has made you known to us…and we have kept your word. My heart sings for companions in Christ who are working so very hard to share your good news I am in awe of pastors learning new ways of shining your light For retired clergy embracing Zoom bivocational pastors reimagining pulpits preachers’ kids volunteering as production assistants choir members uploading their songs for anthems laity reading your word from living rooms and front porches the greatest generation navigating conference calls and social media In all the remarkable ways that your children share the good news of your eternal life and love, I give thanks. And I pray with Jesus that you would protect them (and heal them, and strengthen them, and empower them) so that we may all be one in you. Rev. Erica Robinson-Johnson, Assistant to the Bishop/Director of Connectional Ministries Scripture: John 17:1-11
