A daily prayer from the New England Conference
Members of the New England Conference 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.
Jesus, life is hard sometimes. We have joys, of course, but we face difficulties as well and lately, honestly, it seems as if the challenges outweigh the joys. We know that our Christianity is no "get out of jail free card." We are not immune from the virus or from the hard times that every human faces. So, Lord, use these hard times to refine us. Use these present circumstances to shape our character; to make us more like you. Then Lord, we might be an offering, to you, that pleases. Let this be our Advent prayer. Amen
By Rev. Dr. Jacquelyn Brannen, Superintendent Katahdin District Malachi 3:1-4
