Daily Prayer

Dec. 31, 2021 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. Today's Prayer Holy One, We are so done with this year. Another rises before us. But what’s coming looks as blurry as what was. What will be new? You ask us to sing, LORD, even before we can see. Even before your work is complete. Before the promise is kept. Before the remnant is saved Blind, lame, those with child and those in labor, the homeless, the house heavy, the mournful, the mindful. None left behind, not one. All gathered into you. Come and sing, you say! You are redeemed. I free you. My strong hand draws you into the dance. We will leap over the abyss, waves will tickle our toes as we skip the great waters. We will land in the promised place. On God’s Mountain we open our mouths, heads thrown back, tasting the dew of this fresh day, Together. We will sing! This song is in our belly. It rises from our bones. Words and sounds flowing salt with tears and eager for the clear waterways leading to you. From the coast our heart song reaches out over creation’s waters. And meet others’ songs stretching toward us. LORD, we come, your light rising on and in us, Your light, a new day, Abundant in everything we need, really need. We are ready to be as fresh as a watered garden, Ready to give up languishing. Ready to rejoice. We are ready for our mourning to be turned into joy. Ready to replace sorrow with gladness. Still your questions, oh Lord, teases us across this threshold, “will they be satisfied with what I give?” “Will they know who I am?” By Rev. Karen L. Munson, DMIN, Many Waters District Superintendent Jeremiah 31:7-14
