A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis on April 10, 2020

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.

Today’s prayer

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.

By Beth DiCocco Scripture: Psalm 116:1-2, 12-19
