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.



Today’s prayer


Lord, This morning as we wonder how to remember and celebrate your entry to Jerusalem while away from our sanctuaries, help us remember and celebrate that you always desire to enter into a sanctuary — not in our buildings, but in our hearts.  Enter every anxious and fearful heart and renew a sanctuary of your peace that all may dwell and worship with you today and always. Enter every lost and no-longerbeating heart and renew a sanctuary of your eternal life that all may dwell and rest with you today and always. Enter every afflicted and virus-stricken heart and renew a sanctuary of your healing that all may dwell and be restored in you today and always. Enter every broken and mourning heart and renew a sanctuary of your consolation that all may dwell and be comforted in you today and always. Enter every helpless and despairing heart and renew a sanctuary of your hope that all may dwell and endure with you today and always. Enter every restless and frustrated heart and renew a sanctuary of your patience that all may dwell and take one day at a time with you today and always. Enter every little and young heart and renew a sanctuary of your joy that all may dwell and play with you today and always. Enter every helping and courageous heart and renew a sanctuary of your strength that all may dwell and prevail with you today and always.  Enter every praying and seeking heart and renew a sanctuary of your compassion that all may dwell and share the burden of suffering with you and with all today and always.  Enter every ruling and governing heart and renew a sanctuary of your servanthood that all may dwell and serve in humility, truth, and justice with you today and always. Enter the heart of this nation and all nations and renew a sanctuary of common humanity that all may dwell and rebuild a Kin-dom of one human family with you and with all today and always. Enter the heart of all fear-mongering and profiteering powers and renew a sanctuary of your love and life that all may dwell and take one single life more precious than the whole world with you today and always. Lord, We are spreading the cloaks of trust and waving the branches of hope in you this morning.  Enter into the Sanctuary of Heart. Come to dwell and save us and all today and always. Hosanna,  Blessed is the One whose sanctuary is in every heart! Amen. By Rev. We Hyun Chang, Metro Boston Hope District Superintendent
