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


In our wilderness wandering, so often our eyes are kept from recognizing you. 

Instead, we focus on our fear, our sadness, our grief … 

because our screens are filled with dire predictions, heart-breaking stories, and death tolls. 

You try to remind us that we’ve been here before … 

That you were there and still are here … 

You try to feed us with bread that sustains … 

But we don’t see it, or it is too fleeting … 

There are signs of the Rising … people making face masks, health care heroes, first-breaths after days on ventilators, extravagant generosity, shared art, spring’s burst of new life … 

Keep appearing, Risen One … don’t stop walking beside us and urging us to follow you toward life … 

to remember,  

to smile,  

to eat,  

to embrace your hope,  

to see you, 

and to join with you as your Easter people. 

By Rev. Erica Robinson-Johnson, Director of Connectional Ministries/Assistant to the Bishop Scripture: Luke 24:13-35
