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 wonderful God of possibilities
The hour has come for us to glorify you
Jesus has made you known to us…and we have kept your word.
My heart sings for companions in Christ who are working so very hard to share your good news
I am in awe of pastors learning new ways of shining your light
For retired clergy embracing Zoom
bivocational pastors reimagining pulpits
preachers’ kids volunteering as production assistants
choir members uploading their songs for anthems
laity reading your word from living rooms and front porches
the greatest generation navigating conference calls and social media
In all the remarkable ways that your children share the good news of your eternal life and love, I give thanks. And I pray with Jesus that you would protect them (and heal them, and strengthen them, and empower them) so that we may all be one in you.
Rev. Erica Robinson-Johnson, Assistant to the Bishop/Director of Connectional Ministries
