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.
who is love
help us to know deep in our bones that
Love is persistent, love is wide.
It does not hoard, it does not withhold, it is not limited.
It does not exclude others; it is not some silly ethic that’s just for the weak or faint of heart.
It is not harmful, it does not keep what is good, what is just from another.
Help us to understand that …
Love does not come easy,
but it does graft us together;
it keeps us close and it keeps us alive.
It always includes,
By Rev. Ashley Renée Johnson, Director of Connectional Ministries Inspired by 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
