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.
Have we forgotten… that You are the Creator that You know our hearts that You know our needs? Have we forgotten… that You are in control that You are omnipotent that You are omnipresent? Who are we … to question Your wisdom to demand answers to think that we can control our own destiny? Who are we … to use our free will for evil to war against nations to be inhumane to our fellow man? Forgive us, oh Lord… for our failure to praise You for our mean spirits for our shortcomings. Forgive us, oh Lord… for our sins for our judgments for our lack of piety. It is You, oh Lord… Who has bestowed this life upon us Who has given us everything Who has given us Your only Son! We kneel in Your presence… confessing our sins acknowledging our inequities and praising You for all of Your blessings! Remind us, Lord, that You are listening. Hear our prayer and make us mindful that You are with us, now and forever. We thank you, God… for being with us, ALWAYS! in good times and especially when things look bleak. AMEN
