September 6, 2020 A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis During these difficult days, members of the Commonwealth West 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.
Is it true? that whenever we gather in Loving Purpose a Spirit of Love dwells? My heart aches to gather to clasp hands to hug So I rest my hand against a Rock I kneel down and touch the Soil I lean against a Tree A Gathering in a Spirit of Love O Spirit that dwells deep within and all around we offer this sacrifice not to clasp hands not to hug We paint it on our doorposts as we weep for the suffering the oppressed the slain Gather our tears, we pray Weave them with the stars and seeds and songbirds a Mighty Quilt of comfort to cradle us in our Covenant faithful to this sacrificial love that binds us and sets us free Dr. Tallessyn Grenfell-Lee, laity from FUMC Hudson, MA In response to Exodus 12:1-14; Psalm 119; Matthew 18:15-20
