A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisis
During these difficult days, members of the Kathadin District of the New England Conference 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.
Based on Ephesians 1:15-23
Faithful God, each day blessings are sprinkled into our being and living. Too often, our complacency has replaced our gratitude, as we have taken for granted these simple yet profound gifts. Clean water, a roof overhead, food to eat, beauty to witness, have all become expectations rather than gifts to be celebrated and shared. May the reception of these daily gifts transform our thanksgiving to thanks-living, as we embrace loving you and neighbor this day and in the days ahead. Amen.
Dr. Steven Smith (Bangor First UMC, Corinth UMC)
