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.
Lectionary Readings: Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18, Psalm 27, Philippians 3:17-4:1, Luke 13:31-35 or Luke 9:28-36, (37-43a) Based on Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18, Psalm 27, Luke 13:31-35 O God, my faithful and merciful God, thank you for being with me every step of my way. When my troubles assail me, when my foes of the world try to defeat me, you stand by me every step of my way. And so I will not fear them. When the world seems to be against me, I know that you shelter me. You hide me from everlasting pain. I know this and trust you and therefore, I can feel joy in your faithfulness, even in the midst of my struggles. You gather me under your wings to keep me safe. Even when I am not willing to accept your help, you never leave me out in the cold, or to my own defenses. Thank you, God, for allowing me to be one of the stars in your sky, one of your wonderful creations, one of your beloved children. Amen.
