A Daily Prayer from the New England Conference
Members of the New England Conference Extended Cabinet and others they have invited are sharing a daily prayer based on the Revised Common Lectionary for the week.
Throngs of people gather.
Palm branches waving.
Shouts of affirmation: Hosanna,
Lord, save us!
Unexpectedly comes a man,
not on a war horse but a donkey.
Can he save us from Rome, from oppression?
Can he deliver us?
Humbleness rather than brute force?
Lord, give us the courage to follow.
Here is our Messiah, we profess our faith.
Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Glory to God in the Highest!
May this enthusiasm sustain us through difficult times
as well as the good.
By Rev. Megan Stowe, Commonwealth West District Superintendent
