Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
How quick we are condemn. We easily change our allegiances and loyalties when our feelings are hurt. We want things our way, and we want it fast. If our needs are not met we condemn. Jesus shows us a much different way. As we pray this week may we too be as merciful to others at God is towards us.
How to use these prayersGreetings Friends: These prayers are meant to be prayed either in community or in solitude. If done with a group this can be read as a responsive prayer with a leader reading the regular print and the rest of the group reading the bolded print. These prayers are posted at the beginning of each week and are based on the Watchword for the Week as found in the Moravian Daily Texts.
