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.
Read John 14: 23 – 29 Holy Spirit, My request is simple to pray but hard to practice. Instill in me and my community a hunger for learning. Root in me and my community an ear for prophecy. Plant in me and my community the seed of generosity. Build in me and my community a passion for diversity and difference. Cultivate in me and my community the practices of worship fasting prayer. Pour in me and my community a healthy dollop of common sense. Amen. Submitted by Rev. Rick McKinley, Director of Congregational Development. Prayer by Jack Levison, SMU Perkins School of Theology, printed in “Holy Spirit I Pray” by Jack Levison, Paraclete Press, ©2015, pg. 24.
