Aug. 13, 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

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.   — Hebrews 12.1-2 (NIV)    


Guide my feet while I run this race.

Guide my feet while I run this race.

Guide my feet while I run this race,

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!*  


Guide my feet, O God, and make them swift and beautiful, carrying good news to those in need.  


Hold my hand while I run this race.

Hold my hand while I run this race.

Hold my hand while I run this race.

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!  


Hold my hand, O God, like a yoke that is easy, making my burdens light.  


Stand by me while I run this race.

Stand by me while I run this race.

Stand by me while I run this race.

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!  


Stand by me, O God, as I stand upon the shoulders of giants in the faith who have gone before me.  


I'm your child while I run this race.

I'm your child while I run this race.

I'm your child while I run this race.

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!  


I’m your child, O God, who longs to be made perfect — perfect in joy.  

Search my heart while I run this race. Search my heart while I run this race. Search my heart while I run this race.

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!  


Search my heart, O God, and know me like a pioneer knows a longing for something new.  


Guide my feet while I run this race.

Guide my feet while I run this race.

Guide my feet while I run this race.

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!  


Guide my feet, O God, and make them swift and beautiful, carrying good news to the whole world.   Amen.
