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.
Spirit, we cry to you today. We are thirsty. We are so dry; as dry as Ezekiel’s bones. Jesus knew thirst too, and Jesus promised us that In the day of our deep thirst, you would be there. Jesus told us that if we believed, we could drink from your living waters and find refreshment for our weary souls. This is that hour, Spirit. We thirst … we believe … we drink … Thanks be to God.
“Spirit, Spirit of gentleness, blow through the wilderness calling and free; Spirit, Spirit of restlessness, stir me from placidness;
Wind, Wind on the Sea.”
By Rev. Dr. Jacquelyn Brannen, Northern Maine District John 7:37-39 Spirit, Spirit of Gentleness James K. Manley 1978.
