Daily Prayer

June 17, 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

Inspired by 1 Kings 19:1-4, (5-7), 8-15a and written in the middle of day two at Annual Conference: We find ourselves at times running like Elijah to save our lives. We run from responsibilities, challenges, overbooked calendars, enemies, health concerns, injustice, undone to do lists and so much more. Lead us to our broom tree, our beach, our mountain, our walk, our coffee shop, our couch or moments where we might find our rest. May we hear your messengers telling us to eat and be nourished for the journey and work ahead. We will find ourselves in the midst of winds and earthquakes throughout our lives, but God brings us to those places of silence. In the silence, we long to be fed, nourished, and enlivened so that we may become the renewed Body of Christ. Quiet our lives, minds and bodies in this moment to hear your word of love in our hearts. We claim the silence and the movement of the Spirit within it and us in the name of Jesus who withdrew for prayer throughout his ministry to be fully available to be the hands, feet and heart of God in our world. Amen. By Rev. Dr. Wesley Palmer, Executive Director of the Preachers' Aid Society
