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 our Creator,
Jesus our Messiah,
Spirit our Advocate,
Inspire us to write to someone —
a dear friend, a co-worker —
and remind them that we are attentive to you on their behalf.
Inspire us to recognize someone for what we cherish most in them —
the aspects of their character that most resemble you.
Inspire us to express our gratitude
for the impact someone has had upon our life and the difference they have made for others.
Inspire us to challenge one another,
calling upon our best
and highest selves for your sake.
Inspire us to send a gift
that is close to our heart and thoughtful of someone’s need,
setting us all free in the giving.
Inspire us to forgive —
to stand in front of another
like a shield when there is wrong that needs mending.
Inspire us to place our confidence in you,
and your people,
and everything that is of you.
By Rev. Jill Colley Robinson, Green Mountain District Superintendent
