Daily Prayer

October 16, 2021 A daily prayer from the New England Conference The clergy and laity of the New England Conference 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

“Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted.” Isaiah 53:4

Prayer Inspired by Isaiah 53:4-12, Job 38:4, Psalm 91:9-16 Heavenly Father, who are we that you love unconditionally and always willing to show us your love and goodness? With our heads bow, we recognize your word and the finished of your Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross. Almighty Father, even though we do not seek your ways as we ought to, in your infinite wisdom, understanding, and grace, You demonstrated Your plans of redemption, which is beyond our knowledge. Why you decided to take your precious Son and put him through such a public disgrace and excruciating pain during his time on this earth is beyond our comprehension. For this, we do know you love us with your everlasting love, even in our mistakes. And you have promised that when we come to you as we are and accept that without you, we are nothing, You will continue to show us your mercy and grant us your perfect peace. For even though we deserve nothing from you, You went to the cross for our salvation, healing, and protection. We confidently declare that we shall be free from fear and intimidation. We shall not be afraid to openly serve you and continually trust you to save us the terror of night, nor sorrows by day, nor known or unknown diseases. Even if we constantly hear discouraging news around us that a thousand have fallen in our community or many thousands elsewhere, we will put our hope in You, God, that you will save us. In Jesus Christ Name, I pray. Amen. By Rev. Wisdom Zio, Pastor, Wesley UMC (Dorchester MA), Commonwealth East District.
