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.
Peace be with you. Enter the locked spaces of our homes and hearts. Do Lord. As you did not shrink from the terrible difficulties before you, Show us how to rejoice now even in the presence of pain.
Peace be with you Breathe on us, breathe of God. Forgive us our fear, our reluctance, our willful denial So that we may forgive others And live.
Peace be with you It’s me, it’s me, oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer. Stand with me again and again Until I recognize you And believe I may have life.
Rev. Dr. Karen L. Munson, Mid-Maine District Superintendent Scripture: John 20:19-31
