Daily Prayer

February 14, 2022 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 Inspired by Luke 6:27-38 Gracious God of Love and Compassion, in this season where we focus on Love, guide us toward an understanding of true Love as conceived by you for all of humanity. We come together in the spirit of unity and a raised consciousness in search of the true Love you embody. We implore you with all of our senses to help us seek and embrace true Love that we can share with all of humanity. Help us to not only hear and understand the thoughts and words of Love that surround us. Give us the ability to see the acts of Love – both great and small that abound around us. Let us touch one another with the warm embrace of brotherly and sisterly Love. Guide us into your kingdom so that we can smell the flowers in the coming bloom of Spring, your breath of fresh New England air as it sweeps across the horizon, and the sweet flavors of our friends, our children, those we Love, and those who need our Love. And, finally, let us feel the presence of your Love as we sit in quiet repose with the inhalation and exhalation of our breathe and the pulsations of our heart – elements of the Love of life you have given us. Infuse our presence in the world with the knowledge that you are the penultimate Love, the source and meaning of Love throughout the world for all of humanity. Keep the power of your Love for us alive in the hearts of everyone so that we may come together as a community in the body of Christ our Savior. Oh gracious God, help us always to remember: Love creates us, Love translates us, Love defines us, Love refines us, Love sustains us, And, in the end Love explains us. And finally, through the power of your presence in our lives – Love surrounds us. We now extend our Love in silence for those we know, for those we do not know, and for those who need our Love as part of the common human experience that binds all of us together regardless of race, philosophy, political persuasion, abilities, strengths or weaknesses. We offer this prayer in solemn recognition of the need for all of us to extend your Love throughout the world for all of your creation. Amen.
