A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar and the members of the 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.
O God, our Rock and our Redeemer,
you are our stronghold against the forces within human life that confront us each day,
and which try to shake our faith and resolve,
so, we look to you in confidence and trust.
We pour out our hearts to you O God,
because our God is there waiting
to lovingly respond to our needs,
and quietly waits to offer us love and acceptance,
and a secure road to travel that will lead us to our home in God.
Thanks be to God – our Rock, our Redeemer and our Refuge – always. Amen.
