Daily Prayer

May 5, 2022

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.

Today's Prayer

We pause our day, O Holy One, to take a deep breath, to refocus ourselves and our energies on the true purpose of our gathering in prayer together ... Today, O Lord, I give you thanks for the gift listening. Many of us are endowed with the gift of hearing but not all of us are very good listeners. The world around us makes so much noise that we don’t always listen for your voice among the clutter and chaos of life. Help us, O God, to intentionally take the time to listen for your voice. Remind us to listen to the words of the Psalmist in 46:10 to Be still, and know that You are God. Help us to be intentional about spending time listening for you through the words of your scripture and through prayer so that we might reflect and understand your will. Open my ears that I may hear voices of truth thou sendest clear, and while the wave notes fall on my ear, ev’rything false will disappear. Silently now I wait for thee, ready, my God, thy will to see. Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit divine! Clara Scott The United Methodist Hymnal, No. 454 Submitted by Rich Hughen, Conference Lay Leader Created after reading John 10: 22-30
