June 24, 2021A daily prayer from the New England ConferenceThe clergy and laity 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.
Today's PrayerO Lord,
Weeping may linger for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
I've lived the long night of the soul,
weeping for the 600,000+ Americans who've died,
wailing for the loss of 3.82 million worldwide.
We felt you hid your face from us.
Yet, you remind us that joy comes with the morning.
As I awake today,
remind me of your favor,
and your faithfulness.
Be gracious to me.
Be my helper!
Help me to be gracious to others.
How can I keep from singing your praises,
dancing in jubilation?
How beautiful it is to be with your beloved children once again,
sharing in a holy embrace.
I cried out to you for help,
and you have healed me.
I will give thanks to you forevermore. Amen.
Rev. Megan Stowe, Superintendent, Commonwealth West District
