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.
whose reign encompasses all that was, is, and shall be,
holy is your name.
May your reign be so clearly apparent to us,
that your will becomes our action,
here, on earth, as it is true in the realm of heaven.
Give us what we need this day to be sustained throughout the day,
as we are sent out to teach and baptize in the name of your Son.
Release us from those things that bind us
and cause us to fall short of your vision for our lives,
just as we release others from their own shortcomings.
Don’t let the distractions of this world interfere.
So that in our witness we are able to resist evil, injustice and oppression
wherever and whenever we encounter it.
For it is your kingdom.
It is your power.
It is for your glory.
Today and every day.
By Rev. Rick McKinley, Director of Congregational Development, based on Matthew 29:16 – 20 and The Lord’s Prayer.
