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.
Scripture Reading: John: 17:20-26 O God, we beseech you: hear the supplication of Jesus, answer his prayer that we may all be one, even as you are one. Hear the outpouring of Jesus’ heart, his plea on our behalf, that we, like him, may be in you, and you in us. O God, we beseech you, to hear the One to whom you gave your glory, the One from whom we have received the same, so that the world may believe. Let the prayer of Jesus be ours, not so that we can dictate what is right or wrong, not so we can boast of our power, not so that we can be set apart, but so that the world may believe. Let the prayer of Jesus, be our prayer too so that peace will replace war, truth will replace lies, love will replace hatred, so that we all may be brought into complete unity. God of Grace, hear our prayer through the love of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, that we may be one, even as you are one. Amen
