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 Psalm 27 Almighty and Holy God thank you for being our light and salvation in a chaotic and darken world. When all else fails, you are present. When it becomes confusing and conflicting, you are present. When persons are afflicted or affected, you are present. When things become crazy and there is no end to the madness, you are present. When there are divisions and isolations, you are present. When there is hatred and bigotry, you are present. Whatever comes our way or happens, your grace and mercy is always sufficient to give us strength, security and truth. As you do all of these and our lives remain in your hands, Encourage us to listen to the cries of the needy. Empower us to be a blessing to someone. Educate us to attain wisdom. And draw us closer to you as you continue to save those who are crushed. Deliver us from evil and inspire us to be fearless. Most of all let us be patient and courageous enough to wait on you. With thanksgiving for the most blessed One, Jesus Christ. Amen. Written and prayed by Rev. Alecia Reeves-Freeman, Servant-Leader of Fisk UMC (Natick, MA), where God is always present, and member of the Commonwealth East District Committee on Ordained Ministry
