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.
God of Enduring Love,
Thank you for the reminder that in times of peace or when we are troubled by the distresses of life, your love sustains us.
We are informed by the stories we have heard. Our lives are defined by the stories we tell. Stories shape us.
Today, in the psalm we are reminded that we are the redeemed of the Lord.
Today, we are invited to recall and recount the ways and times your love has saved us.
You are the God who walks with the wanderers and helps them find their way. “Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!”
You are the God who breaks the chains and sets prisoners free. “Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!”
You are the God who heals our brokenness. You are the God who makes us whole. “Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!”
Like sailors you rescue from a shipwreck, you help us keep our heads above the water when the storms of life assail us. “Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!”
Today, help us, to recollect your steadfast love, for we are never alone, and say so. Amen.
By Rev. Wanda Santos-Perez, Seacoast District Superintendent Inspired by Psalm 107
