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.
A prayer written by the 8- to 10-year-olds at Aldersgate Camp and Retreat Center in North Scituate, RI:
Our Father and Creator,
the Son, and Holy Spirit,
Hear our prayer.
Thank you, God, for
For Drinks like Water
For a roof over our heads
For the atoms and molecules that makes up everything,
For our families and friends,
And for all the animals on the earth, like monkeys and things.
We ask you to help us create peace in the world
To help our leaders make decisions that will lower prices like for gas and groceries
Help people learn how to stop polluting the earth,
to stop littering
And to work toward eliminating food waste.
Forgive us for making weird and not-so-good decisions,
For treating our houses like trash,
And for creating waste with our food and resources.
We thank you for everything and
We pray for all of these things in your name,
