October 17, 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

It’s Me, Lord: A Prayer based on Job 38:1-7 (34-41) Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?” Job 38:1-2, New Revised Standard Version It’s me, LORD. It’s me standing before you searching for answers. I’m tired, confused, grieving, my life feels like death. It’s me, LORD. It’s me searching for answers as I try to make sense of it all. Life is more mysterious, strange, and wondrous than I want to admit. I want to know. I want an answer to the why and the how, but the answer is always just beyond my understanding. It’s you, LORD. It’s you creating and sustaining all life. You are ever-present. May I forever rest in the knowledge that you are near and not in my contrived answers and limited understanding. It’s me, LORD. It’s me standing before you. I want and need to feel you near. Amen. By Rev. Jacob Juncker, Franklin UMC (Franklin, MA), Commonwealth East District
