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.
Faithful God, we are longing for resurrection, but are standing in the shadow of the cross
We remember the pain of your cross, and of those we have carried and carry now.
We call on you; incline your ear to us and hear our cry: For a world swept by a pandemic For those suffering this illness For those charged with their care For those who go hungry For those who are lonely For those who despair
We weep for our savior and for a world in peril. We wonder, like the disciples, what will become of our dreams for the kin-dom.
Help us, God, to know that you hear us as we live in the tension between this painful death this dreadful silence and the joyful resurrection. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
