A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis

During these difficult days, the Preachers' Aid Society is 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.


Today’s prayer

Inspired by Psalm 34:1-5 [NRSV]

“Praise for Deliverance from Troubles” 1  I will bless the Lord at all times;     his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2  My soul makes it’s boast in the Lord;     let the humble hear and be glad. 3  O magnify the Lord with me;      and let us exalt his name together. 4  I sought the Lord, and he answered me;     and delivered me from all my fears. 5  Look to him, and be radiant;     so your faces shall never be ashamed. O God of glory and radiance, you who are worthy of praise, and the source of healing and compassion: we magnify your Holy Name and seek, in your Presence, deliverance from all that afflicts your people.  Liberate us from that which makes us afraid; release us from prisons of self interest; call us to compassion for all who suffer and grieve: so that your Love may empower us with hope, and give us grace and strength to endure together through every season of distress and hardship. In gratitude for your abiding Presence, O God, we pray in the Name of Him who healed the sick, comforted the afflicted, and calmed the storm; Jesus, The Christ. Amen. Written by The Rev. F. Richard Garland  Retired United Methodist Elder; North Kingstown, Rhode Island; Seacoast District
