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.
Written by a cabin of youth for morning devotions in 1931 at Senior High Camp in Winthrop, Maine Submitted by Norman Thombs, Director, Camp Mechuwana God, sometimes I feel overwhelmed with all the hard things going on in our world. We (the 9th grade cabin) do not understand why we have turned our backs on your teachings, your love, your acceptance of everyone. We are especially concerned with how people choose to judge people for their beliefs, the way they look, how much money they have, who their friends are, how smart they are, what job they have, how they worship, and how they talk to God. It seems like we are judged on every aspect of our life. That is why today we give thanks to you God, for providing us with this week where we can be us and no one will tell us that we need to change. Amen PS If anyone would like to discuss this more deeply, we invite you to our cabin during “conversation period” at 2:00 p.m.
