A daily prayer from the New England Conference
The 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 Prayer
Inspired by Ephesians 5:15-20 and John 6:51-58
Holy and Gracious God;
We feel empty.  Our lives are often drained by a world that takes its nourishment from the indulgences of self-centered living instead of the wisdom of your unconditional love.  Each day, we are confronted by influences that seek to distract us from you and your call for us to lead lives filled with joy and hope.  Left on our own, we would be starved of the very thing that gives us life.

But each day is also an opportunity; a chance to be filled with your Spirit and nourished with your love.  Help us to walk carefully through this day; shunning those forces that tolerate evil and seek to separate us from you and your children.  Help us to make the most of this moment, recognizing that each day creates new openings to be witnesses of your love and proclaimers of Good News to all of our neighbors.

Loving God, let us sing your praises this day as we pray in the name of the One who truly is the Bread of Life.  Amen.
Rev. Jim Shook, Hope Ministries @ First UMC, Gilford | Laconia, NH
