September 17, 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.
Gentle as a lamb and mighty as a roaring lion. Most High, we ask for your peaceful presence to engulf our spirit to make a fire within that comes from your love. Be ready for Love to call upon you. Even though we are all different, we have purpose and are driven to the heavens. We are to do the next right thing but do so humbly with heart and with humility of a deeper mindset. Our bodies are but shells waiting for us to blossom in the light of your son Jesus Christ. Christ died for our sins, so that everyone could be saved if they confess with their lips the might of the One and True Living God and keep in our hearts the grace and peaceful mind that the heavens are awaiting us. We are forgiven and set free when we announce our Redeemer as being Love. Be kind, gentle, patient, loving, humble and let go mindfully the judgement with those poor in spirit for they will be lifted high to the Kingdom of our Creator. Let us all be comforted. We are Blessed and we belong to Your Church and Community.
