Daily Prayer

July 26, 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

For this summer day:   In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being Birds afloat in air's current, sacred breath?  No, not breath of God, it seems, but God the air enveloping the whole globe of being. It's we who breathe, in, out, in, in the sacred, leaves astir, our wings rising, ruffled -- but only the saints take flight.  We cower in cliff-crevice or edge out gingerly on branches close to the nest.  The wind marks the passage of holy ones riding that ocean of air.  Slowly their wake reaches us, rocks us. But storms or still, numb or poised in attention, we inhale, exhale, inhale, encompassed, encompassed.

— Denise Levertov

  Offered by Rev. Ted Crass, president, United Methodist Foundation of New England
