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.
We thank you for this day.
We are living!
How can we demonstrate our gratitude?
We want to serve your purpose.
We confess that each of us can’t understand “everything” …
That we need each other
That our attachments to our ideas,
sense of rectitude, sense of “fairness,” and to our money ……
can lead to thought and action that can undermine your purpose.
In this day, whose burden can I help relieve?
Today, in our encounters,
we trust and surrender to you.
Guide us to seek and recognize opportunities to make real your love and caring in our thought and action. Amen.
Rev. Ted Crass, President, The United Methodist Foundation of New England.Inspiration: Luke 16.1-13
