Daily Prayer

Aug. 28, 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

Scripture Reading: Luke 14: 1, 7-14

God of abundance

who is both guest and host

who invites us to come to the table,

and is invited to be present at the tables where we eat,

teach us,

hospitality

and humility

that we may partake of 

the true food

and the true drink

that you serve us in Jesus.


God of compassion

who expands our guest lists,

and extends our tables,

to include those who have nothing and everything,

to bring to the feast,

show us how to eat  together,

with you and with one another.


God of hungry souls

you are the source of our longing

the fount of our food.

You deepen our hunger

and satisfy us with true bread.

Sanctify the tables where we eat

by your real presence with us

through our re-membering and our communion. 


We offer our hunger

and our thirst,

for the refreshment of our souls,

in the name of Christ Jesus,

the bread of heaven,

who lives and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit,

now and forever. 


Amen.


By Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar
