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.
Holy God, Light of the World, Shepherd to your people, Come to us today!
Dwell in each of our hearts and minds.
Be for us the Holy Star, lighting our path and giving us hope.
We live in dark times, Lord. There are wolves among the sheep.
There is confusion, illness, death and subterfuge. Light our path, Holy One.
Help us to see beyond the hype, beyond the confusion, beyond the grief.
Help us, Sweet Lord, to see you, first and foremost.
Help us be wise men and women, seeking you, finding you and laying treasures at your feet.
In your holy name we pray, Amen.
By Rev. Dr. Jacquelyn Brannen, Katahdin District Superintendent
Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12
