May 17, 2021A daily prayer during this COVID-19 crisisDuring these difficult days, members of the clergy class of 2020 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.
Today’s prayerBorn out of the lectionary readings for Pentecost.
Holy Spirit, flame and breath,
Burn in my life
and warm me to your presence.
Melt the barriers
which restrain me from participating in your kindom.
Consume the crates and categories
which keep me from seeing your image in each of your children.
Enter my being in every inhalation
and bring these bones to life so I may participate in your healing work.
Free my tongue with every exhalation
that I might speak your language of grace and bear witness to your glory.
I remain alive in you. Amen.
Rev. Kathleen Decker-Szakas, Highland Avenue UMC, Gardiner, ME
