Daily Prayer

Aug. 18, 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

Holy One, you call us    

to do more than we think we are capable of,     to be stronger than we believe we are,    

to manifest the vision of your Gospel, even in our imperfection,    

to confront injustice, even though our knees are knocking    

to speak truth to power, even with a quivering voice.  

Forgive us when we shrink from our vocation.  Forgive us when we speak the words: “But I am only …”  

Do not allow us to play small,     

but urge us to rise to our full stature        

as those created, gifted, and consecrated        by the Lord of all creation    

for the work of building your kindom on earth.   

Bless and send us into this day     

emboldened by our identity as your beloved,     empowered by your call on our lives,    

and enabled by the strength of your Spirit.   We go forth in your name. Amen.  

By Rev. Arlene Tully, Many Waters District Superintendent Inspired by Jeremiah 1:4-10
