May 26, 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.
A prayer/poem inspired by Psalm 29
Lord God, you are our strength
when life's violent winds blow knocking us down,
when the fog creeps in and elects to linger,
when the ground beneath us shakes leaving us feeling scattered,
when the waters around us thrash,
and when some morsel of reprieve comes
Help us to feel you,
reaching out to us
in all things.
Help us to know you
as the one
who gives us the strength
to be present with others
in the storm.
Help us to live,
knowing that you
and your love
will forever be
more powerful than all things.
