A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, members of the Granite District of the New England Conference 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.
A Prayerful Reflection based on Psalm 28:6-7
Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard the sound of my pleadings. The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
Creator God, we come to you with; adoration Our hearts are full of love for You; We lift up our voices in praise to You; Your divine goodness and unconditional love is all we need.
Forgiving God, we come to you; repentant For the times we wandered from You; For the times we doubted You; For the times we have not loved others as You love us.
Gracious and loving God, we come to you; grateful For the faith You have bestowed within each of us; For the promises You keep; For the assurance that You hear our prayers.
Generous and Merciful God, we come to you; seeking Wholeness, which we find only in You Mercy and grace, which You bestow upon all of creation Peace; which You so freely give and we so dearly need.
All this we pray to You, our God, our rock and our redeemer, in the name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
Prayer by Rev. Patricia Marsden, Newmarket Community Church, Newmarket, NH, (UCC, UMC, ABC), Granite District
