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.
God, your house has many rooms, plenty of room for all … and for that, we are grateful.
When our hearts break at the loss of loved ones, you remind us that they are just moving into your place, and that helps heal the hurt.
We can envision them mingling in the kitchen while you prepare a feast
Seated around the dining room table breaking bread together with friends
Sitting at your feet in the study seeking all their unanswered questions
Gathering in the living room with all the other saints, in a great family reunion
And when the day is done, retiring to the bedroom for a final, fulfilling rest from life’s labors
Comfort us in our loneliness, console us in grief, and remind us that there is room in your heart for each of us and room for everyone in your eternal home.
Rev. Erica Robinson-Johnson, Assistant to the Bishop/Director of Connectional Ministries
Scripture: John 14:1-14
